Overview


With hundreds of dramatic, full-color, large-format maps produced by Europe's finest team of cartographers, the third edition of the New Concise World Atlas solidifies Oxford's position as the only publisher of regularly updated atlases at every desirable size and price.

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. Recent changes to the world's geography are thoroughly captured in this edition, including new national parks in Iceland, Turkey, and South Africa; a groundbreaking rail link joining North and South Korea; and the latest name forms in Somalia. Tribal areas in northwest Pakistan are mapped in greater detail, as are the aboriginal lands of Australia. Fully updated tables and world statistics provide data on climate, population, area, and physical dimensions that cannot be found in any other single reference source. Finally, an index with over 55,000 items make searching for lesser-known locales quick and easy.

Truly international in scope, created with meticulous care, and reflecting the very latest political developments and census information, Oxford's New Concise World Atlas, 3e achieves the highest standard among international map resources. This engaging and affordable resource is second to none in the superb quality of its maps, the breadth of its coverage, and its easy-to-use convenience.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Outstanding."-Library Journal starred review
Library Journal
This update of the 2006 edition contains 128 pages of full-color, computer-generated maps by Philip's, a division of Octopus Publishing, with detailed and dramatic terrain modeling. They reflect all of the most recent geopolitical changes, including the separation of Montenegro and Kosovo from Serbia, as well as demarcation of the de facto states of Abkhazia, Nagorno-Karabakh, and Somaliland. The boundary between the Serb Republic and the Muslim-Croat Federation in Bosnia-Herzegovina has been omitted in this edition, as have the special page of maps featuring current "Regions in the News." The northern Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii inset maps have been enlarged. The introductory "Earth in Space" section includes 11 world thematic maps with illustrations and text that explore topics from demographics and economics to the environment. Pluto's demotion to dwarf planet status is reflected. Statistics for the maps and tables have been updated to 2006–08 figures. The index features more than 55,000 entries with map, but not geographical, coordinates. There are six pages of world statistical tables for countries, cities, climate, and physical dimensions, updated to 2007 or 2008 data. BOTTOM LINE This condensed and abridged version of the premium Oxford Atlas of the World offers all libraries outstanding value in an up-to-date, medium-sized atlas for an amazingly low price.—Edward K. Werner, St. Lucie Cty. Lib. Syst., Ft. Pierce, FL

This new Oxford atlas is basically a scaled-down, updated version of the splendid, full-size tenth edition of the Atlas of the World. The 128 pages of full-color, computer-generated maps reflect all of the most recent geopolitical changes, including newly independent East Timor, Serbia and Montenegro, and Russia's new provinces, among others, and a special page of maps features current world hot spots, with Iraq replacing former Yugoslavia. The terrain modeling is detailed and dramatic. Twelve world thematic maps with illustrations and text explore topics ranging from demographics and economics to the environment, and the index features 55,000 entries. Not included from the larger edition are most of the full-page satellite photos, the ready-reference gazetteer, the city map section, and geographical coordinates in the index. There are, however, six pages of world statistical tables for countries, cities, climate, and physical dimensions. Overall, this atlas offers excellent value for the price and will permit libraries to have additional copies for reference as well as circulation.-Edward K. Werner, St. Lucie Cty. Lib. Syst., Ft. Pierce, FL Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Gr 6 Up-This well-designed, slightly oversized atlas packs in an enormous amount of information. It opens with endpapers that provide a world and European map, a key, and an abbreviated index. The essential one-page "User Guide" discusses graphic aides and the sequential order of the visuals. The six pages of world statistics that follow (countries, cities, climates, physical dimensions, and regions in the news) are straightforward. An added plus is the "Earth in Space" section, a mini-encyclopedia that discusses a range of topics from the beginnings of the universe through the evolution of the natural and human worlds today. Along with essays, this section informs readers with charts, graphs, and diagrams. The impressive photographs also include satellite images. Six sections of detailed but easy-to-read colorful maps constitute the bulk of the book. Each begins with single-page physical and political maps of the region or continent it covers. Those that follow span spreads; some include insets. While not as thorough as the Times Atlas of the World: Comprehensive Edition (Crown, 1999), this up-to-date volume offers solid information on a wealth of topics, clear visuals, and an extensive index to the maps.-Tina Hudak, St. Bernard of Clairvaux, Riverdale Park, MD Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
