ASIA PACIFIC: GEOGRAPHICAL CASE STUDIES. Edited by Vincent Bunce. WorldawareHodder amp; Stoughton. pound;9.99.

This book, published to complement a Channel 4 Schools TV series, is closely focused on the classroom, primarily at key stage 4 but quite accessible for most younger pupils.

Urban issues in Bangkok, agriculture in China, industry in Korea, tourism in Vietnam, and the finance industry i Singapore provide case studies in a colourful and well-designed text. (But why is it that in geography books, industrialists are never found without a cigar, and environmentalists always have long hair, beards and glasses? ) This book was edited by the late Vincent Bunce, whose industry and enthusiasm did so much to give development issues their currently high profile in school geography.
