From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-10?Three books that provide much-needed, timely information on all aspects of life today in their respective countries. A pleasing series layout draws readers into the texts through well-placed, excellent-quality, full-color photographs and reproductions. The language is challenging, yet the information is interesting and clearly presented. Organized by topics such as geography, lifestyle, government, language, arts, and festivals, a great deal of material is supplied both for report writers and for general readers. In Haiti, students will learn about the background of the people, their recent political turmoil, and anticipation of Aristide's return to power. Especially interesting here is the discussion of the various ethnic and language influences, as well as the important role of voodoo. The ingenuity and creativity of the Haitian people as a positive factor in this struggling country are rightfully credited. El Salvador traces the history of the Spanish Conquest and the influences of Indian languages and liberation theology on the people. The political role of the United States in recent history should prove helpful to anyone trying to understand the country's recent and devastating struggle against abuse and injustice. Here, too, the arts, especially poetry, play a major role in everyday life. Finally, Nicaragua presents an engaging look at the Nicas, as the people are called. All three of these well-done volumes conclude with maps, a quick-notes section, a brief bibliography, and a substantial index.?Nancy E. Zuwiyya, Binghamton High School, NY
