Résumé :

This is a compendium of graphic displays revealing America's position among the world's nations, on a wide array of topics ranging from economic, military and environmental matters to family unit demographics.

The contents encompass world and U.S. current affairs, economics, energy, education and demographics, to create a convenient reference for all of these areas of study. Anyone who wants to hone his/her global perspective of the U.S., on matters ranging from math literacy of high school students, infant mortality, national debt, crude oil imports and even the number of cell phone subscriptions, will benefit. It delivers maximum knowledge with minimum effort on the part of the reader. Readers will learn facts to stimulate their thinking which may change the lens through which they view the world.
