Overview

This classic atlas has been extensively revised to reflect the numerous complex changes occurring in today's world. Continuing their rigorous tradition of reliability and accuracy, Bartholomew map-makers and Reader's Digest have used the latest cartographic technology to create an atlas that is up-to-date, clear, and accessible. New to this edition are seven stunning satellite images covering North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania, and Antarctica. The detailed reference maps, compiled from the most comprehensive and authoritative databases, are organized by continent. They provide balanced coverage of the entire world and include physical features, political boundaries, cities, and towns with populations as small as 10,000. Each section of reference maps is preceded by illustrated continental profiles featuring population, shaded relief, and climate maps; flags; and country-by-country details of area, population, capital, languages, religions, and currency. The continental profiles are complemented by a series of physical, environmental, and climatic maps of the world. Detailed maps of the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific oceans are included as well. Finally, a comprehensive index of over 30,000 place names makes every location instantly accessible. This easy-to-use and attractive atlas is an invaluable reference source for students, business and leisure travelers, and armchair explorers everywhere.
