Organized thematically into nine separate sections - "Space", "The Earth", "The Living World", "The Human Body", "Science and Technology", "Transport", "Countries of the World", "People and Society" and "World History" - this pocket encyclopedia covers all major subject areas clearly and concisely. Using photographs and cutaway artworks, fact boxes and illustrated timelines, each page conveys the maximum of information in the minimum of space. Cross-reference boxes on every spread direct the reader to related subjects, and the contents list and index make looking up entries quick and easy.
