DOCUMENT INFO
Description: Basic information about maps is related in double-page spreads illustrated with color photos and other images. Chapters are arranged chronologically, from the American Revolution to the Cold War and beyond, focusing on individuals who acted as spies for - or against - the country; shorter vignettes on other notable people, activities, and technologies related to spying are interspersed. The books' layout is less engaging than the subject matter; there are no illustrations and the pages of text may be daunting for reluctant readers. Focusing mainly on the January 2010 earthquake disaster, this book also touches on the challenges Haiti has faced from Columbus days to the present: slavery, extreme poverty, frequent hurricanes, historically corrupt political leaders, etc.
