Description:

The only world atlas updated annually, guaranteeing that users will find the most current geographic information, Oxford's Atlas of the World is the most authoritative resource on the market. The Sixteenth Edition remains the finest international reference source of its kind available. Including new census information, dozens of city maps, gorgeous satellite images of Earth, and a geographical glossary, this atlas offers exceptional value at a reasonable price. Full of crisp, clear cartography of urban areas and virtually uninhabited landscapes around the globe, the Atlas has maps of 69 cities and nearly 100 different regions at carefully selected scales that give a striking view of the Earth's surface. Opening with world statistics and a colorful, instructive 48-page Introduction to World Geography--beautifully illustrated with tables and graphs--this acclaimed resource provides details on such topics as climate, the greenhouse effect, plate tectonics, agriculture, population and migration, and global conflicts. As in years past, this edition includes the latest geographic information. The popular satellite image section has been refreshed with stunning new images of different regions and urban areas. A completely updated Gazetteer of Nations provides an invaluable A-Z reference of concise country profiles, including statistics on economies, politics, and historical profiles. Providing the finest global coverage available, the Atlas of the World is not only the best-selling volume of its size and price, but also the benchmark by which all other atlases are measured. Interior pages designed for heightened accuracy and ease of use Detailed city plans and country profiles make it the ultimate geographic reference "An indispensable reference." --The Today Show "A veritable encyclopedia of geographic and demographic information, profusely illustrated. Extraordinary." --The New York Times "This authoritative volume is the standard by which others will be measured." --Boston Herald "You can't do better than the Atlas of the World." --Chicago Tribune
