Summary In an increasingly interconnected world we need to inform ourselves about the nations and regions with which we share our planet. Global Studies: Asia is a new series of reference books (available both in print and online as eBooks) designed as a resource for students as well as anyone traveling to or conducting business in Asia. Concise yet comprehensive, each illustrated volume uses a mix of lively narrative and reliable reference data to provide a solid overview of the history, geography, culture and customs, business and economics, politics, and social issues of a selected country or region. Each volume includes a combination of narrative chapters; an A-Z section of significant people, places, and events; a chronology; a directory of business, cultural, government, and tourist organizations; and an annotated bibliography of print and nonprint resources.
