From School Library Journal:

Grade 7-10-Chapter titles indicate the usual coverage of geography, history, people and culture, economy, and government typical of country studies, but the emphasis here is on physical and economic geography much more than on sparking an interest in the people and their lifestyles. For example, in the chapter "How Ukrainians Make a Living," GDP, GNI, Purchasing Power Parity, the "shadow economy," and corruption are discussed, along with information on the basic sectors of the economy. "Living in Ukraine Today" has a few pages on topics such as education, food, and sports; it then focuses on environmental problems before ending with a survey of regions similar to what might be found in a guidebook. Cooper occasionally goes off on tangents, such as a discussion of Florence Nightingale's care of British soldiers during the Crimean War. In the chapter on history, Prince Vladimir's name is misspelled and the assertion that Latin became "the official language" in the area under Polish rule in the mid-14th century is problematic. There are also a few typographical errors and inconsistencies in the transliteration of the names of cities. The full-color photos are serviceable, but not great. Patricia Kummer's Ukraine (Children's, 2001) is a more coherent, much better written and engrossing book, and it has many more images, especially of the people and the culture.

Review:

"There is an amazing wealth of information to be found in this book."

..."sprinkled with intriguing, eye-catching photos and interesting text that flows easily...an excellent introduction."

"The series does an excellent job of providing context and explanation for the modern states, rather than just a long narrative about dates, names and battles."

"New arrivals to the expanding Modern World Nations series should not be missed...assure readers plenty of material suitable for in-depth reports, yet a lively enough style to lend to browsing. All are lasting, ongoing recommendations for librarians seeking to build long-term, quality collections."
