A handsome atlas employing the Peters projection (promising greater fidelity in: area, location, and axis yielding a thin South America, a short Greenland). Here is no bias toward Europe and N. America all topographic maps are at the same scale (1 cm=80 km). Uses shaded relief, with color representation of surface character. The 246 thematic maps (at much smaller scale) cover such familiar topics as language, energy, and health; but surprise us with the direction in which scripts are written (to the left, upwards, or to the right), and the number of fighter planes (Iraq 500 to 1,000), and tanks (USSR over 50,000).
