Country Studies

Description:
The Country Studies Series provides electronic access to books published between 1988-1998 by the Federal Research Division of the Library of Congress as part of the Country Studies/Area Handbook Series. The Country Studies Series is a way for United States government officials and citizens to access information on foreign countries. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of the Army, the Country Studies Series offers analysis and descriptions of 101 countries and regions in terms of geography, economy, politics, history, foreign policy, society, and national security. Because the series was originally intended to provide information on lesser-known countries and regions, Canada, France, the United Kingdom, and other Western nations and regions have been excluded.
