This atlas begins with about 25 pages of introductory matter (including a small collection of world thematic maps covering, e.g., population) and then moves on to roughly 165 pages of double-page, small-scale physical maps featuring shaded relief and spot heights. Also included are two pages of statistics (e.g., the longest rivers, the highest mountains) and an index of place names that is nearly a third of the volume. The atlas is geared toward users who are primarily interested in North America and Europe, with maps of these two continents taking up about 27 percent of all the maps. Each double-page map spread includes scale, projection, and a map location diagram. Some spreads include general metro-area maps for major cities such as Berlin. It's all pleasantly presented, with attractively colored maps, and the price is certainly right. However, the Library of Congress Cataloging-in-Publication data are for the 2000 edition of this work, so libraries that have that edition might want to pass on this purchase. For smaller reference libraries and for home and office collections.-Mary Lynette Larsgaard, Univ. of California Lib., Santa Barbara Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
