Summary
Presently in its eleventh edition, the Atlas of the world has hundreds of dramatic full-color, large-format maps and a host of satellite photography. The atlas has been fully updated to reflect the changing world incorporating new nations (East Timor), new flags (Afghanistan), new statistics from the 2000 Census in the United States, and dozens of other significant revisions. At the core of the book is the 176-page section of world maps, providing detailed political and topographical information about every nation on Earth, enhanced by relief shading and layer-colored contours. The tenth edition of the atlas offers a completely redesigned interior layout allowing for the highest level of factual and visual detail within an easy-to-read, accessible format. The comprehensive and expanding 75,000-entry index makes locating specific places easy and convenient, and a separate index for the section of city maps from 67 major metropolitan areas enhances the volumes usefulness. A colorful 48-page Introduction to World Geography section illustrated with color maps, charts, and graphs provides a wealth of information on such topics as the climate, the greenhouse effect, plate tectonics, agriculture, population and migration, and global conflicts
