Children's Literature
Located in the center of Europe, Germany links the eastern and western portions of the continent. Throughout its history, this country has been divided into many different states, and, for much of the last century, into two separate countries. This thirty-two-page book briefly touches upon Germany's reunification and looks at the country's history and people in relation to its topography and geography. Major cities�Berlin, Munich, Frankfurt am Main, and Cologne�are profiled along with Germany's leading industries. Famous for contributions to the automobile industry, the accomplishments of Gottlieb Daimler and Karl Benz are mentioned, as is the formation of Volkswagen (the "people's car"), to manufacture the Beetle. Environmental challenges facing Germany�recycling brown coal mines, acid rain, and chemical spills�are noted. One of "The Lands, Peoples, and Cultures" series, this book also includes information about the country's agriculture and wildlife. 2001, Crabtree Publishing/Bobbie Kalman Book, Braaf <%ISBN%>0778793729
