About this Collection - Country Studies

Intended for a general audience, books in the series present a description and analysis of the historical setting and the social, economic, political, and national security systems and institutions of select countries throughout the world. Most books in the series deal with a single foreign country, but a few cover several countries or a geographic region. The series includes several books on countries that no longer exist in their original configuration—such as Czechoslovakia, East Germany, the Soviet Union, Sudan, and Yugoslavia. These books remain in the series because they continue to offer valuable historical information and perspective.

In some cases, studies on successor states are also part of the series. Google Noticias. Aow archive — Kelly Gallagher. Student News. Current Events and Literacy for Middle Schools. TIME Edge is the premier digital news source developed specifically for middle school students.

The modern map of the Middle East was created by Europeans less than a century ago. Today, the conflict in Syria is calling into question the viability of those borders, which were frequently drawn with little regard for local communities.
