BBC Country Profiles: instant guide to history, politics and economic background of countries and territories, and background on key institutions.

Seth Dixon‘s insight:

The CIA World Factbook is a great encyclopedic source of information about all the countries in the world and a great place for students to find information for the classic country report project.  But have you ever wished that the World Factbook would be linked to the current events and media sources for the country of your choice?  That is exactly what the BBC news has created with their Country Profiles page, an expansion on their regional tabs (such as Africa and Asia).   This is a link worth bookmarking, and one I’ll including in tag with  a compilation of the best resources that I’ve put on this site (IMHO-If you have nominees that aren’t on the list, let me know).
