From the Publisher
Diversity is the spice of life, and the highly regarded Cultures of the World series celebrates just that in fully updated, and expanded editions. As has always been true of these outstanding titles, an abundance of vibrant photographs -- including those new to this edition -- stimulate the imaginations of young readers as they travel the globe. A new chapter on the environment focuses on politics and economics as well as on endangered species and the effects of industrialization. Additional authentic recipes add general interest while new maps offer further, easy-to-find facts in "About the Geography, " "About the Culture" and "About the Economy" sections.
About the Author
Sean Sheehan was brought up in London but every summer holiday was spent in Ireland and only glimpses from train windows on journeys from Euston to Holyhead suggested that other places existed. After adult years of travelling and living in Southeast Asia Sean now has his home in Ireland.
