Overview

Truly international in scope and fully up-to-date, the Third Edition of the successful Concise Atlas of the World offers the same comprehensive coverage as its parent, the Atlas of the World, in a conveniently-sized and affordable package. Including world statistics and survey data, a user's guide, and a general index of over 40,000 place names and features, the Concise Atlas is indispensable for students and professionals alike. In addition, a colorful 32-page Introduction to World Geography explores engaging and timely topics from acid rain and the Richter Scale to fuel exports and female employment, while a new "world hot spots" map features current territorial disputes in Bosnia, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, the South China Sea, and many other places. And now, for the first time, all maps are computer-generated from a digital database, offering unprecedented clarity and legibility enhanced by their elegant design and color.
To make the Concise Atlas of the World both accessible and engaging, Oxford sought the advice of educators and librarians from across the nation. Following their recommendations, we have included a host of useful and informative features, such as a user guide, helpful graphics on map projections, a subject index, representations of flags from around the world, and much more. The special 48-page United States map section offers an abundance of multicolored political, topographical, and climate maps, as well as closeups of urban areas.
Created with meticulous care and reflecting the very latest political developments and census information, Oxford's Concise Atlas of the World achieves the highest standard among international map references. This engaging and affordable resource is second to none in the superb quality of its maps, the breadth of its international coverage, and its easy-to-use convenience.
