This comprehensive, illustrated almanac is packed with fascinating information about the entire physical world and its peoples. Organized into four main parts for easy reference---What Is Geography, Physical Geography, Human Geography, and Places---the work covers not only the most important subjects to geographers today, including earth's formation and structure, weather and climate, geology and bioregions, population growth and migration, urbanization and cultural identity, and global trade and the environment, but also the history of geography itself and the critical work geographers do in the art and science of mapmaking. Generously illustrated with hundreds of vivid color photographs, charts, graphs, sidebars, and maps that range from new satellite images of the earth to the diversity of human languages to the forces of nature around the globe, this one-of-a-kind volume also features some of the National Geographic Society's most recent world maps. An extensive Flags and Facts section provides many vital statistics on the geography, culture, economy, industry, and more for every nation of the world. Including an extensive glossary, fact-filled sidebars, sources for further information, and a complete index, the new National Geographic Almanac of Geography offers all the latest geographic information you need at your fingertips to understand the geography of our world and all that is in it.
