Overview

At the heart of this new and comprehensive atlas of the three largest countries of North America is a unique thematic section covering physical, historic, economic, urban, social, and cultural topics ranging from environmental change to religious practice and from indigenous peoples to migration patterns. These newly drawn maps depict an increasingly multicultural and diverse realm in momentous economic and social transition. The thematic section is preceded by a series of spectacular satellite images and followed by detailed cartographic, statistical and narrative coverage of each of the realm's three nations. Regional maps of states and provinces and larger-scale maps of urban areas are accompanied by fascinating information and useful data. In combination, these components make the new Atlas of North America an unparalleled tool for research as well as reference, a teaching device as well as a study source, a travel guide and a book of learning. All of this is facilitated by an all-inclusive, particularized index. The modern and current Atlas of North America is an indispensable item in any professional or personal library.
