Greece (Countries of the World) - School Library Journal
An up-to-date and comprehensive look at Greece, with a great deal of information packed into its pages. The layout has plenty of white space. . . . There are a lot of sidebars and large, fresh, and interesting photographs. Several maps, a “key facts” page, and footnotes on sources are included. . . . The text is businesslike and informative [and] it reads well. Uncommon facts are included as are excellent summaries of several of the Greeks’ main concerns. . . . This attractive book deserves serious consideration.
