Booklist Review

Gr. 4^-7. Like other books in the Country Insights series, these new volumes cover a country as a whole and compare life in a village with life in a city (usually of medium size). In Czech Republic, readers learn about the changes that took place in the country following the fall of Communism, as well as specifics about work, school, and leisure time in the city of Brno and the village of Nizkov. There are fewer contrasts between the city and the town in the volume on Cuba, as the inhabitants of both Havana and the village of Republica de Chile live in large, multifamily dwellings. The books cover the basics for reports, but they also give a personal view of life in each place by using quotations and candid, high-quality photographs of the people. Each volume includes a thorough glossary as well as further readings. --Susan Dove Lempke
