WHO...was the only modern leader to return fire during an assassination attempt? WHY...is kissing on trains banned in France? WHICH...island used to be home to a crocodile that jumped on its prey from trees? WHAT...was the first song to be sung in Outer Space? With a reasonable claim to be the most useful book ever written, John Oldale's "Who, or Why, or Which, or What...?" is a cornucopia of history, travel, politics, wildlife, language - indeed, a celebration of everything which makes this planet so fascinating. With an entry for every country, from the impenetrably immense (China) to the most completely marginal (San Marino - although it has stiff competition), this beautifully illustrated book is jammed with the most peculiar, fascinating and surprising information. Whether you are interested in man-eating catfishes, the use of wizards to influence archery contests or the location of the Land of Hum, this is the book for you.
