The fine, detailed maps of the countries and oceans of the world give this Atlas its appeal and its authority; and as atlas readers today require accurate information about physical, social and economic matters, the maps are complemented by pages of colorful diagrams, with clear, straightforward text. The preliminary section of the Atlas includes a comprehensive survey of the Earth's origins and its structure; continental drift and geology; astronomy and navigation; atmosphere and climate; minerals, fuels and energy; population and human settlement; food, industry and trade. Figures and diagrams have been updated for this edition. The maps and 90,000 entry index have been revised and updated. The Times Concise Atlas Of The World - an indispensable asset for the general reader, the traveller, and the student.
