    DescriptionFrom the wealthy cities of the north to the parched olive groves of the south, Italians are rising to the challenge of European Union membership. And their lives are changing in other ways, too. Agriculture and manufacturing were once Italy's main employers, but today over half of all Italians work in service industries such as tourism and information technology. Environmental awareness is increasing, and both companies and individuals are taking responsibility for looking after Italy's natural resources. Meet the people of Italy, and learn about the diversity of their lives, from a student in Ravenna to a fisherman in Comacchio. Includes maps and graphic panels showing statistics and fact boxes about size, flag, population, religion, currency and language.>

    Review quote
    'One thing you can't accuse the authors of these books is talking down to the target audience. The books are written in a straightforward style ... But they go deeper than the geography lessons older generations had to suffer ... Here the authors have gone to speak to real people and let them tell what things are like in their country now, and in the past, in their own words ... These books are a worthwhile addition to any school library, or even municipal library, and at a more personal level could be of great value individually to young people.' -- Reviews online, October 2002
