Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0778797503, Paperback)

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

Candid new photographs depict India's unique mixture of peoples at home, work, and school in this engaging updated edition of India the people. Updated text includes information on unions and cooperatives for poor women, the practice of purdah where women must be covered head to foot, and new education laws.

Other topics include:
-- the history of India's struggle for independence
-- life in an Indian home
-- urban and rural areas
-- social problems such as unemployment and poverty
-- Indian customs
