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

The long history of the German people traces back to 2000 B.C. This new book illustrates its people from the powerful Roman Empire through to the twentieth century's division and reunification of Germany. Vivid photographs depict what village and city life is like today at home, school, and in the workplace.

Topics include:
-- the Frankish empire
-- the crusades and the Order of Teutonic Knights
-- WWII -- Hitler and the holocaust
-- the fall of the Berlin wall and reunification
-- city and village life
-- traditional German food and customs
-- a recipe for Pfeffernuesse or pepper nuts
-- school and sports
