A major revision of the essential guide to national anthems. With both the original and translated words plus music for 198 anthems, this invaluable guide includes countries from Armenia to Zimbabwe. All the latest changes are incorporated: the anthem of the new state of Timor-Leste, formerly East Timor, which became independent in 2002, and replacement anthems for Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Iraq, Mozambique, Rwanda, and Somalia. And where the country’s language is not written in Roman script, the lyrics are transliterated phonetically.

Blackwell North Amer
In this book, the national anthems of 198 countries are included from Armenia to Zimbabwe, from Palau to Papua New Guinea and from Turkey to Tuvalu.
Each national anthem is presented with the words in the original language(s), which have been set, where possible, to the music and, where a national anthem is in a language that is not written in Roman script, the words are given in a transliterated phonetic version, so that it may be sung by people of other tongues. A literal translation of the original words is also provided. The book also includes a fully revised appendix listing the National Days of each of the countries included in the book.
