"The real strength of the series is the specificity with which each culture is examined. A well-organized, easy-to-use research tool." --School Library Journal, February 2010

— Jennifer Prince

"…emphasis here leans toward the geographic, with a sharp focus on capitals, national boundaries, and natural resources. A worthwhile purchase for large public libraries."

— Library Journal
