Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Brazil, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, and Guatemala are the main focus of these new, brightly colored travel books. Moving away from the usual tourist spots, these books provide an in-depth look into the heart of the land and people of these Caribbean countries. Uniform in design, the books are divided into chapters describing the history, politics, culture, economy, and society of each country. Coverage of up-to-date topics such as healthcare, racial equality, peace processes, and environmental concerns in the Amazon rainforest is informative and well researched. Practical advice, further readings, and useful addresses along with nontourist travel information are listed at the end of each volume. Factual and easy to read, these slim travel books are a great resource for students and scholars of the Caribbean.--Stephanie Papa, Baltimore Cty.
