The branches and agencies of the US Government produce a wealth of information. Here are a few of the newest titles accessible through the Miami University Libraries and the internet.
Recent events in Pakistan may have you interested in international geography. If so you may want to check out the most recent Central Intelligence Agency produced maps of Pakistan. These maps cover geography, administrative divisions, and physiography and are available at the Science Library and Online. For general information on Pakistan and any other country the best place to start is another CIA title, The World Fact Book (MU Libraries / online).
Some recent Congressional Hearings focusing on international cooperation, US involvement in other nations and post conflict reconstruction:
- Agent Orange in Vietnam : recent developments in remediation - House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Subcommittee on Asia, the Pacific, and the Global Environment
- Nuclear cooperation and non-proliferation after Khan and Iran - House Committee on Foreign Affairs.
- Bosnia-Herzegovina : outstanding issues in post-conflict recovery and reconciliation - Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe
For some quieter reading try Rain Gardens: Capturing and Using the Rains of the Great Plains (.pdf), available online from the US Natural Resources Conservation Service.
If none of these titles are of interest but are something you wouldn't have thought would be produced by the United States Government, you can browse all of the Government Information & Law Department's newest acquisitions through the library catalog.
