5 editions published in 1987 in 3 languages and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In physical size, they represent both large and small political entities. This study contains extensive information for all four countries in such areas as geography, demography, urban settlement patterns, occupational structures, education, income, industrial and agricultural production, health and household conditions, cultural and religious traits, and political beliefs
