Fascinating and topical as they aret the problem with India and China is there's almost too much information - online, in newpapers, on TV, etc. However, this resource brings together information about two countries by a thorough examination of topics and issues (past, present, future) from a geographical perspective. Good fo Leaving Cert, AS and A levels but also good for teachers own knowledge as Junior Cert, KS3 or GCSE levels.
