Truly international in scope and fully up to date, Concise Atlas of the World offers the same comprehensive coverage as Oxford's celebrated Atlas of the World in a conveniently sized and affordable package.
The most significant revision in years, the Sixth Edition presents several new and innovative features. A new, fully indexed city-mapping program takes the viewer deeper into the workings of global geography. 67 metro maps of the world's great cities are complemented by 38 downtown city-center maps containing detailed information on attractions, transportation, services, and more. A eight-page section of satellite images comprise another new element of the atlas, providing an impression of our world from far above and offering insight into how cities expand and rivers create life in the desert. An improved The World in Focus section offers engaging and timely coverage of topics ranging from climate and weather patterns to wealth and trade, all beautifully illustrated with colorful new images. And the innovative "world hot spots" map illuminates current disputes in Kosovo, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip.
Created with meticulous care and reflecting the very latest political developments and census information, Oxford's Concise Atlas of the World achieves the highest standard among international map resources. This engaging and affordable resource is second to none in the superb quality of its maps, the breadth of its international coverage, and its easy-to-use convenience.show more
