Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
This is not simply an abridged version of its older sibling, the Times Ninth Comprehensive Edition. Of course, the Concise Edition doesn't have the same detail as the larger atlas. But it does contain a remarkably well chosen and detailed set of maps. The physical quality and design is second only to that of the Times Comprehensive. The maps lay almost perfectly flat when the atlas it opened and a clear gap is provided whenever a map runs across the gutter, ensuring no loss of information. The paper stock is ideal: heavy, tear-resistant, non-absorbent, and non-reflective. There are a few flaws: the information in the beautiful new metropolitan maps is not in the index, and the ocean floor maps are disappointing compared to the stunning ones in the National Geographic. But overall this atlas is a delight to the mind and senses and the best of the group behind Rand McNally and Times.

**** Quite simply the best (and one of the biggest--10.5x14.5"), cited in BCL3, Sheehy, and see particularly General Reference Books for Adults in the Bowker Buying Guide Series. This edition, actually the seventh Concise, presents the first completely new set of maps since the first Concise Edition was published in 1972. Other new features include 32 more map pages, clearer international boundaries, redesigned internal boundaries, modern typefaces, type keyed to reflect population, improved color scheme, vastly increased coverage of Africa and South America, 16 more world data pages, a new section of world city maps, and a handsome slipcase. It merits a warning label: This atlas is addictive. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
