Four new countries and nine updated editions have been added to Bobbie Kalman's popular Lands, Peoples, and Cultures series.

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

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

-- Japan's "national treasures"
-- traditional clothing
-- festivals throughout the seasons
