Overview

When Oxford's Atlas of the World debuted, it was widely praised for the incredible beauty and accuracy of its maps and for its wealth of geographical information. The New York Times Book Review called it "a veritable encyclopedia of geographic and demographic information, profusely illustrated with multicolored maps and graphs." Building on the strength and authority of its first edition, the Atlas stands at the forefront of essential geographic resources.

Now in a new Ninth Edition, it remains the finest top-of-the-line atlas available, with hundreds of dramatic full-color, large-format maps produced by Europe's finest cartographers. The Ninth Edition has been thoroughly updated and it boasts several new features. A 32-page Gazetteer of Countries is a quick reference section offering information such as country summaries, flags, and economic data. Forty new island maps, from Bermuda to Bali, have been added for a close-up look at some of the world's smaller land masses. And detailed explanatory captions now accompany the section of full-page satellite images that Library Journal called "stunning." The heart of the book is still the 176-page section of outstanding world maps, enhanced by relief shading and layer-colored contours. The Atlas boasts 66 maps of major metropolitan areas worldwide, charting the key urban centers of each continent, from Cairo to New York City, and a colorful 48-page Introduction to World Geography section--beautifully illustrated with color maps, charts, and graphs--provides a wealth of information on such topics as climate, the greenhouse effect, plate tectonics, agriculture, population and migration.

Providing the finest global coverage available, Atlas of the World is the benchmark by which all other international atlases are measured.

Oxford University Press is one of the finest and most authoritative publishers of reference books in the world. This oversize, beautifully designed atlas is a great value and makes an impressive gift.
Library Journal
An extraordinary value.
Rosemary Herbert
There has never been a better time to own or give an up-to-date atlas...This authoratative volume is the standard by which others will be measured.
Boston Herald
Booknews
With cartography by the venerable, meticulous George Philips Ltd., this comprehensive atlas, truly international in scope, incorporates all the changes in names and boundaries that have thus far emerged from the collapse of Communism in Europe and the USSR, as well as the latest available worldwide census and survey data. Some 160 pages of color maps provide political and topographical information, while a section of 66 city maps charts the key urban centers of each continent. A 48- page illustrated introduction takes a systematic look at world geography. 11x14.5". Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
