The only world atlas updated annually, guaranteeing that users will find the most current geographic information, Oxford's Atlas of the World is the most authoritative atlas on the market. Full of crisp, clear cartography of urban areas and virtually uninhabited landscapes around the globe, the Atlas is filled with maps of cities and regions at carefully selected scales that give a striking view of the Earth's surface. It opens with a fascinating look at world statistics, a six-page special on "Land and Maritime Boudaries," and satellite images of earth, including 8-10 stunning new images sourced from NASA's latest Earth Observation Satellite, Landsat 8, launched in 2013. The extraordinarily extensive front matter continues with a "Gazetteer of Nations" that has been comprehensively checked and updated to include recent economic and political changes, and a 48-page "Introduction to World Geography," beautifully illustrated with tables and graphs on numerous topics of geographic significance, such as climate change, world religions, employment, industry, tourism, and travel. The hundreds of city and world maps that form the body of the Atlas have been thoroughly updated for this 24th edition.

Providing the finest global coverage available, the Atlas of the World is not only the best-selling volume of its size and price, but also the benchmark by which all other atlases are measured.

Review:


"An indispensable reference." --The Today Show


"A veritable encyclopedia of geographic and demographic information, profusely illustrated... Extraordinary." --The New York Times


"This authoritative volume is the standard by which others will be measured." --Boston Herald


"You can't do better than the Atlas of the World." --Chicago Tribune


"A page-turning stroll through the continents." --USA Today


"Flipping through this book is a lush experience, with new satellite imagery and more maps and graphs than you thought imaginable. Reading the Atlas is a little trip around the globe." --Kirkus


"The Oxford Atlas of the World includes, beyond the meticulously detailed topography of every surface on the globe, useful maps of nearly 70 major city centers as well as efficient mini-essays on everything from slums to the global scrap-metal industry. Among 17 beautiful satellite images of population centers, those of Beijing, with its concentric roads encircling the Forbidden City, and Honolulu, a city built atop an undersea volcano, invite the sustained attention we reserve for great works of art." --The Wall Street Journal


"It is, altogether, a handsome product, well-organized, thorough in its coverage, a graphic delight....This is a truly welcome product, a delight to hold, a delight to use." --GeoLounge
