Text from the Back Cover

Madagascar, the world's fourth largest island, attracts visitors for its astonishing flora and fauna, over 85% of which is found only here. The Malagasy people are also unique, with a complicated system of beliefs and customs. Since the first edition in 1986 this has been established as the standard guide to Madagascar.
