The essay itself includes helpful subheads, such as Early History, Revolution and War, Transitional Government, Ongoing Problems, Economic Challenges, Future Prospects, and others specific to the country being profiled. Helpful features throughout the essay include a statistical profile, map, and timeline of all conflicts and takeovers to the present day.

Each volume ends with a list of essays by type of conflict; current, former and variant names of countries; and a detailed index. An annotated Further Reading section at the end of each country essay is enormously helpful, as are the sidebars and photos scattered throughout.
