Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-This revision of Kurian's Encyclopedia of the First World (1989), Encyclopedia of the Second World (1991; o.p.), and Encyclopedia of the Third World (1992; o.p., all Facts On File) encompasses all countries in alphabetical order. There are 30 separate categories of information for each of the 190 countries. Population data indicators and other statistics are presented as tables, governmental organization appears as a chart, and history is covered through narrative text. The article on Afghanistan discusses the role of Osama bin Laden and the Taliban in the September 11 terrorist attacks but it is noted that most general information is current through June, 2001. Hard-to-find social indicators appear, if known, such as the number of women in government, number of public libraries, and percentage of HIV-infected adults. The no-frills black-and-white maps and charts are clear and informative but there is only a written description of the national flags. A previously lengthy further reading section for each entry has been replaced by a more succinct list of books and Internet resources from official sites or statistical offices. An accessible and up-to-date revision of three resources combined into one.-Vicki Reutter, Cazenovia High School, NY Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
