Country Studies

Country Studies provide individual monographs about most countries in the world. Sponsored by the United States government, these publications describe each country's physical environment and its present society in terms of its economy, politics, social conditions, and military situation. They also give historical background material. Each study includes an extensive bibliography related to the country it covers, with the emphasis on English language publications. Older editions of Country Studies are published under the title Area Handbook of [Country]. They are located in the Anschutz Library and the Law Library.
