What city is the gateway to the Taj Mahal? Where can a traveler water-ski, snow-ski, scuba-dive, trail-hike, and play golf all at the same time of year? Why are Roman temples found in Egypt and Arab mosques in Ireland? What is the relationship between Hampshire and New Hampshire, St. Martin and St. Maarten, and Trafalgar Square and Trafalgar Falls? If a flight heading west crosses the international date line, will it arrive the same day, the next day, or two days later? What monetary currency is accepted in Bali, Kenya, or Luxembourg? What languages are spoken in Monaco, Fiji, or the Seychelles?

Understanding the world and its myriad destinations requires an understanding of the relationship between the physical environment and the way people live, think, behave, and work. The World Guide is concerned not only with physical features and location, but on the social, cultural, economic, and environmental aspects of places, as well.

Researched and edited in cooperation with tourism, economic, and natural science authorities from over 50 countries, The World Guide is the ultimate guide to world business, travel, culture, heritage, climate, and nature, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe.

Available from all leading online booksellers, including Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
