Explores Russia, including the geography, people, education, rural and urban life, housing, food, work, and amusements, and provides other information about the country.





From the glossy covers to the crisp, vibrant interior photos, the titles in the revised Enchantment of the World series are as inviting as any travel guide. The clean design and clear chapter breaks make for easy use for middle-school students writing standard country reports, and the attractiveness of the package encourages wanderlust browsing. Russia delves into its preeminence in the arts while also discussing branches of the government and the economy. Each book balances past and present and ends with a time line that sets, for instance, Russian history against a time line of world history. "Fast Facts," a small further reading list, and index conclude. Accessible and informative-and pretty to look at, too. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.
