This compact (22-centimeter) work features 12 thematic maps of the world, 62 regional maps with computer-generated terrain modeling, and an index-gazetteer including 20,000 place names. Large countries such as the United States and the Russian Federation receive greater regional detail. Each of the world's 192 independent nations is provided a brief data profile within the gazetteer; dependent states are treated in a separate section arranged by name of administering power. This completely up-to-date atlas reflects the high quality of the publisher's reference works, but it is best suited for students and home or office use owing to its size and limited scope. For effective service at the reference desk, the World Reference Atlas (DK, 1996. 2d ed.) is the better choice.?Edward K. Werner, St. Lucie Cty. Lib. System, Ft. Pierce, Fla.
