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 picturesque and varied environments of Italy are explored from the mountainous countrysides, fertile valleys, and Mediterranean islands to the sandy beaches of the Italian Riviera. Detailed photographs help convey Italy's beautiful landscape as well as its fascinating cities, crops and livestock, industry, and wildlife.

Topics include:
-- the Alps, the Apennines, and Mediterranean islands
-- earthquakes, landslides, and wild winds
-- volcanic eruptions in history and unearthing Pompeii
-- splendid cities including Rome, the eternal city
-- farming olives, lemons, and grain
-- the renowned Italian automobile and fashion industries
-- transportation from ancient Roman roads to the gondola
-- plants, animals, and a changing environment
