Overview


Oxford's Atlas of the World--the only world atlas updated annually, guaranteeing that users will find the most current geographic information--is the most authoritative resource on the market. The Nineteenth Edition includes new census information, dozens of city maps, gorgeous satellite images of Earth, and a geographical glossary, once again offering exceptional value at a reasonable price.

Full of crisp, clear cartography of urban areas and virtually uninhabited landscapes around the globe, the Atlas has maps of cities and regions at carefully selected scales that give a striking view of the Earth's surface. Opening with a newly updated world statistics section and a colorful, instructive 48-page Introduction to World Geography--beautifully illustrated with tables and graphs--this acclaimed resource provides details on such topics as climate, the greenhouse effect, employment and industry, standards of living, agriculture, population and migration, and global conflicts.

As in years past, this edition has been revised to reflect the latest geographic information. The popular satellite image section has been refreshed with stunning new images of different regions and urban areas around the world. A completely updated Gazetteer of Nations provides an invaluable A-Z reference source of concise country profiles, including important historical events and statistics on economies and politics. Recent events in Africa and the Middle East--and their profound consequences--are incorporated into various country profiles.

Providing the finest global coverage available, the Atlas of the World is not only the best-selling volume of its size and price, but also the benchmark by which all other atlases are measured.

* Interior pages designed for heightened accuracy and ease of use

• Detailed city plans and country profiles make it the ultimate geographic reference

Revisions for 2012 include:

New maps of Dubai, including the Burj Khalifa, the world's highest structure

Tallest building in Chicago renamed the Willis Tower

2012 Olympic Stadium and "The Shard" added to London

World Financial Center (world's third highest building) added to map of Shanghai

The extensive new motorways in China--4,700km built in 2009 alone--are included. (Total motorway network in China is now 65,000km, US total is 90,000km)

New high speed rails in Europe and the Far East shown on larger scale maps

150 UNESCO World Heritage sites added

New rail links added in France, Russia, China, Burma, Turkmenistan, Iran, and Saudi Arabia

New airports added in Berlin, Latvia, Spain, Turkey, India, and South Africa

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"An indispensable reference." --The Today Show

"A veritable encyclopedia of geographic and demographic information, profusely illustrated... Extraordinary." --The New York Times

"This authoritative volume is the standard by which others will be measured." --Boston Herald

"You can't do better than the Atlas of the World." --Chicago Tribune

Library Journal
The 19th edition of this annually updated reference mainstay includes information pertaining to the newly named South Sudan, and the expected global, continental, country, and city maps, and views of the earth from space. Helpful additional content goes perhaps beyond the expected: country flags; statistics related to area and population; star charts; and information on weather, climate, energy, and human geography are just some of those bonuses. While this atlas is beautiful and I don't hesitate to call it a classic, I am looking forward to a digital version. Patrons love the magnification/manipulation of images that the ARTstor database allows, and the same facility from a powerhouse of cartography would be appreciated. There is an Oxford Atlas iPad app ($11.99) available for individuals to purchase (not supplied to reviewer), but no app or site license option for libraries appears to be available for this title. Most libraries owning a recent world atlas from Oxford, National Geographic and/or The Times have likely fulfilled their atlas needs. VERDICT Appropriate for any library collection in need of refreshing its world atlas and for those collecting the Oxford print editions.—Lura Sanborn, St. Paul's Sch. Lib., Concord, NH
School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up—Available only in a print version but updated annually, this large-format resource continues to earn pride of place on the atlas case's top shelf for its combination of currency and eye-widening graphics. The physical, political, and country and regional maps that make up the volume's core are works of art-brilliantly designed for easy comprehension, rendered in bright colors and sharp detail, and impossible to resist poring over. An immense index and a detailed gazetteer take up nearly half of the page count. Distinctive additional features include an array of satellite images, more than 50 (simplified) city street maps, a survey article titled "Will the World Run Out of Food?" and about two dozen maps related to climate, natural resources, population, and trade, not to mention star charts and a tour of the solar system. There were no major changes in the world since the 18th edition, but new material includes fresh statistical information; updated flags for two African countries; changes to the selections of city maps and satellite photos; and, in the maps themselves, the additions of significant buildings, UNESCO World Heritage sites, and new roads and railways. Atlases are among the quickest reference sources to age, so for classroom or library collections in which students search in vain for information about, for instance, South Sudan or even Kosovo, this makes a first-rate replacement.—John Peters, Children's Literature Consultant, New York City
