About this Collection
This collection contains nearly fifty country profiles as part of the broader “Country Studies” series. Written between 2004 and 2008, the profiles offer brief summaries of a country’s history, geography, society, economy, transportation and telecommunications systems, government and political structures, and national security.
This series of profiles of foreign nations is part of the Country Studies Program, formerly the Army Area Handbook Program. The profiles offer brief, summarized information on a country’s historical background, geography, society, economy, transportation and telecommunications, government and politics, and national security.
NOTE: Funding for this program has now ended, and the Profiles are no longer updated.
