Library Journal Review

In Spectrum Guides' latest addition to its popular series, stunningly beautiful color photos draw readers into the exotic world of the Maldives. This guidebook provides a comprehensive and detailed description of the country's culture, heritage, and economy, along with pertinent visitor information. Whole sections are devoted to marine life, geography, and the life and customs of the people who live on this chain of more than 1000 coral islands in the Indian Ocean. A directory of airlines and tour operators is included at the end. But it is the photos that make the book. Taken by renowned photographers Duncan Willets and the late Mohamed Amin, the breathtaking images of landscapes and intimate scenes of everyday life capture a realistic portrait of a little-known world. An enchanting book for any collection.√ĄStephanie Papa, Baltimore Cty. Circuit Court Law Lib., MD (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
