Containing over 100 pages of the most up-to-date topographic and political maps, the New Concise World Atlas, 3e also features a unique overview of the planet's human and natural processes in photographs, accessible text, and thematic maps.

Tribal areas in northwest Pakistan are mapped in greater detail, as are the aboriginal lands of Australia.

Finally, an index with over 55,000 items make searching for lesser-known locales quick and easy.
