Editorial Reviews

Review

"Denbow and Thebe present a guide focusing on the African country Botswana and its culture, beginning with a historical overview that covers geography, economy, and politics, followed by a description of the country's religion and worldview, literature and media, art and architecture, cuisine and dress, gender roles, marriage, family, and music, dance, and theater." - Art Book News Annual

"[A] survey of a country made rich by its diamond mines and holding a long tradition of being a model of democratic rule. Its history, culture, and achievements are contrasted with neighboring African nations for a full exploration of its land, people, and culture." - Midwest Book Review/California Bookwatch

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I purchased this book sometime ago for a class. As I look at the picture while writing this I'm quite sure the book came to me in a light tan color, not white like how it looks in the photo. Anyway another good buy for me, it was what I expected it to be for the most part, small in size, not as many pages as the other text books I've purchased. It looked more like at a novel. Brand new in appearance not even the slightest bit of wear and tear on the book just overall good quality for what I needed and paid for.
