The Library of Congress Federal Research Division has issued the latest volumes in a series of country studies published under an agreement with the U.S. Department of the Army: Germany: A Country Study, edited by Eric Solsten, and India: A Country Study, edited by James Heitzman and Robert L. Worden.
The series consists of 107 titles and covers approximately 143 sovereign states and 15 dependencies. A typical book in the series, intended as an introduction to an individual country, contains five chapters describing and analyzing its history, society, economy, government and politics, and national security. The books on Germany and India offer expanded, lengthier coverage than the average book, reflecting the heightened interest in newly unified Germany and the complexity of India's society and culture. All books in the series are hardbound and contain maps, charts, photographs, tables, chapter bibliographies, a glossary and an index.
More than 1.14 million copies of the books in the series have been sold by the Government Printing Office, and more than 232,000 copies have been distributed to depository libraries throughout the United States.
A list of books in print in the series is available from the Country Studies Program, Federal Research Division, Library of Congress, Washington, DC 20540-4840.
