Facts on File National Profiles

The British Isles

Book - 1990
Rate this:
Kurian (World education encyclopedia) has edited the Encyclopedia of the third world (published) and encyclopedias of the first and of the second worlds (both forthcoming). The national profiles in the present volume are derived from these broader references. The standard format covers geographical features, population, ethnic composition, languages, religions, constitution and government, civil service, manufacturing, mining, labor, foreign commerce, defense, education, legal system, political parties, agriculture, banking and currency, freedom and human rights, foreign policy, media and culture. Includes tables of comparative world rankings, a chronology of major events and a bibliography. The books lack graphic displays of any kind. They also lack either topical running heads or detailed tables of contents. And the indices, while detailed, are prone to state "see chapter headings" to which there is no access by page number. See also: DL5, Scandinavia; DS806, Japan; and E38, North America. Annotation(c) 2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
