This book represents a survey of the cultural and economic life of the Croatian people, who have long been noted for their significant contributions to the arts and the humanities. It contains a wealth of factual information on various aspects of one of the most interesting regions in Europe. The authors of the articles which make up this work are all specialists in their respective fields. They have compiled a scholarly review of many of the notable works by Croatian historians, political scientists, artists, and persons in other fields. There is also general information on various aspects of geography and demography, and statistics on population, ecology, religion, nationality and other important areas of Croatian life are included. Other important features are ten maps showing the administrative divisions of Yugoslavia and adjacent countries, and 32 pages of illustrations depicting folk arts, handicrafts, music, painting, sculpture and architecture. This reference work will be invaluable to libraries, and will be a useful source of information for historians, writers on Central European affairs, students of art and ethnic developments, and the layman interested in the Croatian people and their cultural history.
