Publishers Description 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
Learn about the daily lives and family traditions of the people who have lived in this land for thousands of years. Breathtaking photos create intimate portraits of life in both the village and the big city. South Africa's turbulent history is described in a special section on apartheid and its legacy.
Topics include: -- the original peoples -- the Boer War -- the Zulus, Tsonga, and the disappearing San -- Afrikaners, the British, Indians, and Maylays -- the race system of Apartheid and the heroes who helped defeat it -- daily life in the city, the shanty town, and the country -- family life and traditions, homes, and school
