Description

The Atlas of North America represents the work of a team of international specialists and offers a closer look at the world's third largest continent. Opening with two pages of the latest statistics, this atlas depicts an increasingly multicultural and diverse realm in momentous economic and social transition. Providing a broad overview of the three largest countries, the heart of this comprehensive volume is a unique thematic section covering physical, historic, urban, economic, social, and cultural topics ranging from environmental change to religious practice, and indigenous peoples to migration patterns. Accompanied by a balanced combination of informative text and instructive charts and graphs, these newly drawn maps seek to explain the dynamic forces shaping Canada, the United States, and Mexico.The thematic section is followed by several satellite images and detailed cartographic, statistical, and narrative coverage of each of the realm's three largest countries. Regional maps of states and provinces plus dozens of larger-scale maps of urban areas are accompanied by useful summaries describing the history, geography, and industry of each political unit from Quebec to Quintana Roo. In combination, these components make the new Atlas of North America an unparalleled reference book that is as much a research tool and teaching device as it is study source and travel guide. All of this is facilitated by a comprehensive index with latitude and longitude coordinates and alphanumeric grid references that make finding places effortless. What's more, page number indicators and locator windows throughout the atlas allow for easy identification of adjacent map pages.show more
