  • "Most of what is known about the outside world remains superficial and stereotypical. World and Its Peoples: Eastern and Southern Asia brings a long, rich story to light about ethnic groups, the impact of terrain and natural resources, and the influence of history. This unique reference work maps out how the nations of the modern world became what they are today through photographs of the geography and people of foreign lands, through discussion of ancient and contemporary works of art and events, and through scores of maps detailing geographical features, historic and modern places, natural habitats, rainfall, locations of ethnic and linguistic groups, natural resources, and centers of industry and transportation. No single resource assembles such comprehensive insight into the world and the people who live in it. This set incorporates every conceivable focus of interest from holidays to health care, national anthems to gross national product, natural resources, ethnic groups, voting age, performing arts, provincial capitals, leaders of the past and present, native plants and animals, and far more. Newly commissioned political and geophysical maps represent past and present realities. The eleven volumes of this set examine 27 countries and territories in one of the fastest growing and economically powerful regions of the world, which is home to more than one-third of humanity. - Publisher."
