• The World Readers

  • Overview

    Building on the success of the popular Latin America Readers, this new series provides vivid, thought-provoking introductions to the history, culture, and politics of countries, cities, and regions around the world. Edited by experts and including images and carefully selected texts about a specific location, each volume will feature many perspectives, including those of scholars, journalists, activists, novelists, poets, and politicians: historical and contemporary figures, men and women, racial and ethnic minorities, residents providing first-hand accounts and outsiders looking in. Much of the material will be translated into English for the first time. The World Readers are intended for travelers, scholars, and students alike.
