DESCRIPTION:

Switzerland presents a very lucid view of a beautiful, appealing, complex, important and powerful country that has not only endured, but prospered, against the odds. Dr. Charles Heatwole introduces the reader first to the natural landscape of Switzerland, but always relates important categories of landforms, weather, water and vegetation to the human presence. Next, he identifies the major cultural traditions of Switzerland and reviews modern Swiss society and economy. The author concludes with a forward-looking assessment of the current and near future status of Switzerland as a member of the world community of nations.
