From Library Journal:

Not strictly an atlas, this lavishly illustrated work is more like an encyclopedia. There are 55 maps (13 major, 40 minor, and 12 historical), but there are also an equal number of tables and charts, more than 120 photographs (mostly color) and other illustrations, and a chronology. Virtually every aspect of life and environment in contemporary (and historical) China is covered in simple and uncomplicated prose. The depth of coverage is not as impressive as the scope, and even though it has a good index the book's use as a reference source is limited by the failure to document sources. Still, it is a reasonably priced survey, appropriate for most general collections. A more scholarly and historically focused work is Caroline Blunden and Mark Elvin's The Cultural Atlas of China (LJ 2/1/84).Kenneth W. Berger, Duke Univ. Lib., Durham, N.C.
