Since 1992, All About South Africa has been the comprehensive reference book of choice for South African schoolchildren (and their parents ) when looking for information about the country. Now completely revised and updated both in content and visual material this new edition is sure to retain its status. A large-format book of knowledge, it is highly visual, with full-color photographs, maps and illustrations, and includes fascinating archival material. The simple and thematically presented text is both easy to read and to understand. Added interest is encouraged by snippets of information contained in special boxes and extended captions. Also included are suggested places to visit all associated with the topic discussed on the particular double-page spread. To aid research, the text is divided into definite sections such as Long, Long Ago; The People; The Culture; The Community; Science and Technology; The Economy; The Land; and The Wildlife, which cover every aspect of South Africa."
