Filled with informative entries, this title covers all of the planet's nation-states, as well as various tribes and marginalized peoples. It also features a section on food in outer space, detailing how and what astronauts eat and how they prepare for space travel as far as diet and nutrition are concerned If you're dining out in Colombia, don't miss the candied hormigas, an unusual after-dinner sweet made from the world's largest species of ant.
