The ten volume Encyclopedia of World Culture lists and describes more than 1500 cultural groups across the globe. Based on the research of thousands of social scientists, it is the authoritative source for historical, social, political, economic, linguistic, religious, and other information on virtually all cultures existing in this century - from the Abelam, Acadians, Ashkenazim, and Azerbaijani to the Zapotec, Zoroastrians, Zulu, and Zuni. The Encyclopedia will be of immense value to students, teachers, researchers, and professionals in anthropology, history, international studies, geography, journalism, political science, education, social service, government, linguistics, museum studies, religious studies, and many related fields. Volume VIII covers the cultures of Central America and the Caribbean, including the Indian groups and the Island groups such as the Cubans, Puerto Ricans, and Haitians.
