From the pages of the New Yorker come these pieces about a variety of places keyed to the need to keep up with wartime global trotting. The stories managed to present a miscellany of information of personal, peculiar as well as partinent interest. Here are odd facts about cut of the way spots such as the Azores, Syria, Truk, the Crimes, the Marshalls -- then on to better known parts of the globe, Japan, Italy. There's some rather intriguing incidentaliy here, and whether you want to know that the Sardinians hunt the mouflon, or that the Vatican City has more phones per capite then any other state, you can pick it up here painlessly. A compendium folklore, which will not improve you too seriously but will amuse you.
