This is a compendium of all the countries of the world and their historical backgrounds and cultures.  It needs updating but otherwise a very useful reference for any level.

Great material. Extraordinary. I read the information about Chile (I'm Chilean) and although it is slightly out of date, it still is very complete and exact.

Really very useful when it comes to learn about a culture or a country.
