Synopsis: Drawing on United Nations’ and other mainstream data, The World Guide includes all the facts, history, political, and economic analysis you would find in a conventional reference work, but it also offers information on the issues central to the lives of people in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, and the Caribbean. The World Guide is written and produced by the Third World Institute in Uruguay, using research from across the countries of the South. As a world reference, it is unique in providing a view of the world "from the South."
Key features include:
·Updated information on over 200 countries, including Timor Leste, West Papua, and Somaliland
·25 new reports on topical global issues, such as the arms trade, corporate corruption, HIV/AIDS, sweatshops, anti-globalization movements, media, GM foods, climate change, and human rights
·More than 20 tables of factual information on food, education, arms, population, women in government, corruption, debt, employment, and the environment
·"The World in Figures"--an updated section of data and statistics on child health, literacy, maternal mortality, land use, public expenditure, and other issues
·20 or so background briefings including Rwanda’s genocide, oil war in Chechnya, slavery in Africa, Operation Condor, Japan’s nuclear power workers, and water privatization
·NEW "In Focus" box giving at-a-glance information on each country’s human rights, indigenous peoples, health and education, and HIV/AIDS prevalence
·A full index
The fully searchable CD-ROM version includes additional Amnesty International and Social Watch reports.
