Country Studies/Area Handbooks

Contains the electronic versions of 80 books previously published in hard copy as part of the Country Studies Series. The Country Studies collection presents descriptions and analysis of the "historical setting and the social, economic, political, and national security systems and institutions of counties throughout the world and examines the interrelationships of those systems and the ways they are shaped by cultural factors." The original series was designed to provide information on lesser known areas of the world. As a result the series is not all-inclusive.
