Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Nwanna provides an extremely comprehensive and well-researched resource guide for the American traveler abroad. Subjects include safety, health, climate, cultural mores, shopping, shipping, customs regulations, currencies, and financial help for more than 170 countries. Also covered are specifics for travelers who are students, women alone, disabled, elderly, on business, and with children and/or pets. The appendixes include various helpful lists of foreign embassies and tourist offices in the United States, customs offices, passport agencies, visa services, medical assistance organizations, and the location of international airlines, railroad, and rental car agencies. A traveler would be hard-pressed to find information not included in this volume. Its excellent table of contents and index make it easy to use. Well recommended.-- Melinda Stivers Leach, Precision Editorial Svces., Wondervu, Col.
