Gr 10 Up–This update of the 2002 edition is subdivided thematically (rather than alphabetically) and includes new entries on drug and human trafficking, international finance, immigration, and transnational governance. Chapters that appeared in the original edition have been revised and updated. The thematic sections cover “Demographics and Settlement”; “Economics”; “Environment”; “Education, Health, and Welfare”; “Politics and Governance”; and “Security.” Each section is further divided into chapters addressing specific topics. For example, the section on security includes chapters on arms control, drug trafficking, and genocide. Chapters are similarly structured, allowing for easy comparison of issues. Beginning with historical background and development, entries also detail policies and programs, include regional summaries, end with case studies, and are supplemented by informative, black-and-white tables and maps. Every chapter concludes with a section containing biographies of relevant subjects, agency directories, and extensive bibliographies. This quality work thoroughly covers broad ground and will be appreciated by high school students working above grade level.Lindsay Cesari, Baldwinsville School District, NY
