Four new countries and nine updated editions have been added to
Bobbie Kalman's popular Lands, Peoples, and Cultures series. These
powerful and intimate portraits of countries use up-to-date
information and full-color photography. Presented in a mini series
format, three books per country ensures thorough coverage of all
the important aspects. It also allows more students to work on
different projects at the same time. Covering more than basic
history and geography, students will be fascinated to learn about:
-- the land... geography, agriculture, transportation, history,
industry, and glorious wonders
-- the people... unique customs, customs we share, problems
faced by minority groups and women
-- the culture... modern festivals, ancient processions, food,
games, and more
This updated book includes new information on the distinctive
blend of traditional and modern ways of life in Japan, the
challenges faced by Japanese society today, and leisure activities

homes, workplaces, and schools.
