Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This pocket-sized atlas packs in much information at a bargain price. Created in cooperation with the editors of Merriam-Webster, it covers almost 200 countries and all 50 of the United States. Each entry is accompanied by a nicely designed color map featuring a country's or state's populated areas; an insert map situating the place on the globe; a fact box including the official name, language, and principal exports; the country or state flag; its history and key political events; and much more. The appendix lists the latitude and longitude of selected cities, a chart indicates membership in international organizations, and a somewhat dated table provides statistics on computers, mobile phones, etc. The atlas is illustrated in full color throughout, featuring 240 maps in all. Public or academic libraries may wish to purchase multiple copies of this inexpensive but fine ready-reference source. In addition, it will work in circulating collections.-Donald Altschiller, Boston Univ. Libs. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
