To get started, try some of these words along with the name of your country:

  • contemporary
  • "global studies"
  • "social conditions"
  • "human geography"
  • "political geography"

Browsing encouraged!

Call numbers classify books by subject and can help you to locate additional resources.  Browsing the shelf where you found one book can lead to finding others on the same subject.
