Produced by Europe's finest cartographers, Oxford's fully up-to-date Atlas of the World is an authoritative, comprehensive, and easy-to-use reference. Truly international in focus, this outstanding resource provides thorough, in-depth coverage of all areas of the globe.
Oxford's Atlas of the World incorporates all the changes in names and boundaries that emerged from the collapse of Communism in Europe and the USSR, as well as the latest worldwide census and survey data. Hundreds of outstanding full-color maps provide thorough political and topographical information, enhanced by attractive relief shading and layer-colored contours. Carefully selected map scales and projections ensure maximum legibility and accuracy, and allow finely detailed coverage with a truly global scope, from Hokkaido in Japan to the Hawr al Hammar marshes of Iraq to the Imperial Valley in California. Towns, roads, rivers, canals, airports, mountains, ocean depths, and more are located in clear, sharp focus. A special section of 66 city maps charts the key urban centers of each continent, and the 75,000-entry index offers easy, convenient access to specific locations. In addition, a forty-eight page introduction--beautifully illustrated with maps, charts, and diagrams--takes a systematic look at world geography, covering climate, the greenhouse effect, plate tectonics, agriculture, health, population and migration, international organizations and conflicts, and much more.
Created with meticulous care and reflecting the latest political developments and survey and census information, Oxford's Atlas of the World achieves a high standard among international map references. Distinguished in its accuracy, map quality, detailed coverage, helpful organization, and truly global focus, the Atlas is an indispensable resource for the 1990s.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6 Up-- A visually impressive debut in the field of updated atlases. An extensive introduction (47 pages) surveys "The Universe," "The Solar System," "The Earth," "People," "Production," and "Quality of Life" with charts, diagrams, and statistics on everything from constellations to deforestation. Next come 66 maps of the world's major cities. All are drawn to a scale of 1:200K, making relative size comparisons possible. A separate, comprehensive "Index to City Maps" provides quick access. Next, physical and political maps of each continent precede larger scale, more detailed maps of smaller areas. Scale size ranges from as large as 1:800K to as small as 1:64M. Over 100 single and double-page maps with full-color relief shading are complemented by an index of at least 65,000 entries. A closer look at the former Yugoslavia raises an important issue: Bosnia-Herzegovina is not listed or shown as an independent country although it is formally recognized as such by the United Nations. Also, boundary lines between and within nations are sometimes difficult to read and are often not as clear as those found in the Hammond Atlas of the World (1992), which is comparable in scope and content. Still, the overall high quality cannot be dismissed, making this an excellent additional choice for large public and school libraries. --Alicia Eames, Brooklyn Public Library
