"Now in its Twelfth Edition, the Atlas of the World distinguishes itself as a trustworthy atlas, with hundreds of full-color maps produced by Europe's finest cartographers. Replete with 67 maps of cities worldwide, charting the key urban centers of each continent from Athens to Wellington, the real success of this reference rests on 176 pages of world maps, providing detailed political and topographical information about every nation on Earth, enhanced by relief shading and layer-colored contours. A 48-page Introduction to World Geography section - illustrated with maps, charts, and graphs - summarizes an abundant number of topics such as climate, plate tectonics, agriculture, population and migration, and global conflicts in a clear, concise fashion. As in past editions the Atlas has been fully updated to reflect the changing world around us." "The Twelfth Edition also boasts several new features. A Geographical Glossary will be an asset to those unfamiliar with foreign terminology. New high-speed rail links are now shown in France and South Korea as well as the full extent of the Trans-Siberian highway, completed in February 2004"--Jacket

Accompanied by a balanced combination of informative text and instructive charts and graphs, these newly drawn maps seek to explain the dynamic forces shaping the United States of America. The thematic section is followed by a spectacular two-page satellite image of the lower 48 states and several regional maps including a full page for the US Pacific islands plus dozens of larger-scale maps of urban areas.

"The New Sixth Edition of Oxford's Encyclopedic World Atlas provides authoritative full-color maps, detailed gazetteer entries, and up-to-date statistics for every country in the world. Centering around the outstanding relief mapping that has become a benchmark for cartographers, this encyclopedia is a comprehensive and invaluable resource for project work, research, and general home or library reference." "The sixth edition of the atlas is fully updated, improving upon the redesigned interior layout offered in the previous volume. For the first time, the atlas opens with a 48-page World Cities section, providing urban area and city center maps for 67 of the world's most important cities, accompanied by a comprehensive index and sophisticated satellite images for nine of the cities featured. Plus, the same plenitude of statistical and graphic data is present: world statistics for countries, cities, and physical dimensions, and a 32-page World and Continents section containing the most vital and fascinating information about our planet." "The country-by-country section, completely revised and amended, forms the bulk of the book. Arranged alphabetically - from Afghanistan with its new government, to Zimbabwe and its contentious recent elections - each country is profiled in depth with summaries of the landscape, climate, vegetation, history, politics, and economy, allowing for numerous comparisons to be drawn between countries. This section also features more than 200 national flags with a synopsis of their origin and significance, and 160 climate graphs that include informative commentaries providing analyses of local climate conditions. A full-color, topographic map accompanies every entry. The maps are drawn in the style for which Oxford is internationally famous, combining layer-colored contours with relief shading to provide a superb visual impression of the land surface. Cities, towns, and major communication routes are all identified in meticulous detail. The atlas concludes with its 25,000 entry index - a rapid reference to the maps through a clear letter-figure grid system, including geographical features such as mountains, rivers, and deserts."--Jacket
