Description
From familiar neighbors to distant parts of the globe, this engaging series offers readers a close-up look at countries around the world. Vivid color photographs enhance up-to-date information on each country's geography, history, system of government, lifestyle, language, art, food, and more. An intriguing section of special features provides a window into each country's unique customs, as well as its current issues. Each volume details its country's current and historical relations with the United States and Canada, emphasizing the rich sharing of cultures that helps define today's global society. Also included in each volume is a black-and-white classroom map, easy to photocopy for classroom activities.

A country of polders, rivers, and lakes, the Netherlands is known for its ingenious and successful land reclamation projects. The modern Dutch people, descendants of various Germanic groups, are proud of their long history and clever inventions. From the turbulence of the Reformation to the prosperity of the country's Golden Age, this book takes a look at the beautiful lowlands of windmills and tulips.
