Contains digital versions of 80 books previously published in hard copy as part of the Country Studies Series by the Federal Research Division. These books describe and analyze the historical setting and the social, economic, political, and national security systems and institutions of select countries. Most books in the series deal with a single foreign country, but a few cover several countries or a geographic region. The series includes several books on countries that no longer exist in their original configuration—such as Czechoslovakia, East Germany, the Soviet Union, Sudan, and Yugoslavia. These books remain in the series because they continue to offer valuable historical information and perspective. In some cases, studies on successor states are also part of the series.
