About this title


For the visitor to the USA this is a valuable introduction to the bewildering variety and richness of the country. Concisely and readably, the author describes the geography, historical background and the plentiful natural resources which have shaped the nation as it is today. There is a state-by-state list of information sources and details of the size, population, wealth and economy of each area of America.
Lauran Paine, a native of the country, analyses the nation's political climate and its people's problems in a candid evaluation of contemporary life that will be of immense value to the traveller - whether on business or for pleasure in this, the richest nation on earth.
