55 editions published between 1995 and 2017 in English and held by 5,274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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

From the Publisher: An indispensable item in any modern professional or personal library, the Atlas of the United States offers a closer look at the oldest, richest, and most populous country on the continent. Opening with two pages of the latest statistics, this atlas provides a broad overview of a multicultural and diverse nation taking its first steps into a new century. The heart of this comprehensive volume is a unique thematic section covering physical, historic, urban, economic, social, and cultural topics ranging from environmental change to religious practice, and indigenous peoples to migration patterns. 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. A useful, illustrated gazetteer offers still more precision with charts of census data and descriptions of the history, geography, and industry of each state and its capital. In combination, these components transform the new Atlas of the United States into a home reference unsurpassed in quality that is equal parts study source and travel guide. All of this is facilitated by a comprehensive index with latitude and longitude coordinates and alphanumeric grid references that make finding places effortless. What's more, page number indicators and refined locator windows throughout the atlas allow for easy identification of adjacent map pages. With hundreds of maps rendering every region from Barrow, Alaska to Venice, Florida in layer-colored contours, this atlas is the United States as it hasn't been seen before
