Review Text

Revised and updated, this excellent atlas uses superb computer-generated 3-dimensional maps. Each spread includes political and social aspects of a country, with colour photos of buildings, customs or places of interest. Crops and industries are marked on the maps and statistics on population, life expectancy and literacy allow comparisons to be made easily. It is addictive once you start browsing.
