Namibia is a vast and mostly desolate territory that sprawls over the southwestern region of the southern African subcontinent. Bisected by the Tropic of Capricorn, the country is bordered in the west by a forbidding 1 500-kilometre Atlantic coastline, in the north by the Kunene and Okavango rivers (beyond which are the countries of Angola and Zambia), in the east by Botswana, and in the southeast and south by South Africa. Broad in its scope yet revealing fascinating detail about this enigmatic land, This is Namibia is a compelling visual essay on the country, its peoples and its wildlife. Stunning photographs provide an exciting and diverse overview of the country. These are complemented by a detailed introductory text that offers insight into the realities of a country moving hesitantly, but with hope, into a challenging future.
