An overview of the African nation of Uganda, including information on its geography, history, government, social life and customs, and relationship with North America.
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Grade 5-8–The look, organization, and coverage make this volume similar to entries in the "Cultures of the World" series (Marshall Cavendish). However, in addition to addressing the basics–geography, history, government, and culture–Oghojafor devotes a chapter to contemporary issues and foreign relations. He gives an overview of U.S. diplomatic relations from Uganda's independence in 1962 to presidential visits from Bill Clinton in 1998 and George W. Bush in 2003. Timely discussions on collaborative efforts to combat AIDS and terrorist threats, particularly after September 11, help readers understand today's global interdependency. A crisp, full-color photo appears on almost every page, and a clear, full-page map is included. This attractive book provides ample information for reports.–Ajoke' T. I.
