A shortened, more easily handled version of the estimable parent edition. Still bigger than Goode's (and correspondingly more cumbersome, particularly for smaller student hands and desks), it measures 9.5x12.5". Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    Great DK atlas!

    Wow, this is the best atlas around that will actually take you on a mini-trip throughout the world. The notes and small photos around the maps tell you features and background to the focused area. Like other DK books, this book is very colorful and highly educational.
