China - The People (Lands, Peoples, & Cultures) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Four new countries and nine updated editions have been added to Bobbie Kalman's popular Lands, Peoples, and Cultures series. These powerful and intimate portraits of countries use up-to-date information and full-color photography. Presented in a mini series format, three books per country ensures thorough coverage of all the important aspects. It also allows more students to work on different projects at the same time. Covering more than basic history and geography, students will be fascinated to learn about:

-- the land... geography, agriculture, transportation, history, industry, and glorious wonders

-- the people... unique customs, customs we share, problems faced by minority groups and women

-- the culture... modern festivals, ancient processions, food, games, and more

This comprehensive new edition of China the people features colorful new photos depicting daily life in China's many regions. Updated information includes clothing (featuring the Mao suit) and the internet revolution helping China's billion people communicate under the watchful eye of the government.

Other topics include:

-- China's various national groups

-- one-child families

-- education and family life

-- homes in urban and rural areas

-- businesses

-- sports including martial arts
