Information Mongolia: The Comprehensive Reference Source of the People's Republic of Mongolia (MPR)

Front Cover
Elsevier Science & Technology Books, 1990 - History - 505 pages
A welcome reference to one of the world's least known countries. It embraces aspects of the physical, political, economic, social and cultural life of Mongolia. Covers important material on geography and climate, natural resources, history, conservation, agriculture, the economy, industry, trade and commerce, literature and the arts, and tourism. The wealth of statistical data has been bought up to date. Some 500 illustrations--several in color. Prepared by the Academy of Sciences of the MPR it is marred by a propagandistic style. Nevertheless it is a unique and quite thorough reference on a land about which any information is scarce and scattered. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
