About the Cover
Fish Market, Ivory Coast, West Africa
The Ivory Coast, with over 500 miles of shoreline on the Atlantic Ocean, is blessed with abundant marine life. This local wealth supports coastal fishing, most of which is done on a small scale, using lines or nets from canoes. Foreign trawlers are also attracted to these same fishing grounds and can exploit this resource far more intensively than the local people. Nonetheless, fishing remains an important livelihood for many people in the Ivory Coast. Freshly caught tuna, sardines, and hake are sold throughout the country, in markets such as the one shown here in the region of Man.
Color illustrations and clear, vigorous prose make this an accessible survey of the diverse civilizations of the world. Each of seven major sections includes an introductory essay, a timeline which shows the major events in five regions<-->Europe, the Near East and India, East Asia, Africa, and the Americas<-->side by side, several brief chronologies, chapter outlines, primary source documents, world perspective sections, comparative perspectives essays, and religions of the world essays. Also available in two volumes. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
