New Concise World Atlas
Item#: X OXAT CONCISE
With hundreds of dramatic, full-color, large-format maps produced by Europe's finest team of cartographers, the New Concise World Atlas stands to strengthen top-of-the-line atlases by improving on both the content and the price of our previous concise edition. The New Concise World Atlas offers a fresh look at the world in a clear and direct manner, opening with six pages of compiled statistics on world population, climate and geography--important points of reference for the global citizen. The highly illustrated "Earth in Space" thematic section that follows provides a broad overview of the planet on a macro level, placing our planet in the larger context of the universe. In twenty-two compact yet compelling essays, the Earth's human and natural processes are explained through a balanced combination of informative text, instructive charts and graphs, and vibrant photography and mapping.

As part of a suite of atlases that are updated annually, the New Concise offers information other atlases lack:

  • revised province names and boundaries in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, the Czech Republic, Iran, Jordan, Lebanon, Paraguay and Venezuela, as well as the introduction of the Euro to the European economy
  • With 128 pages of the latest maps at carefully selected scales, every region from the Arctic Ocean to The Volga Basin is rendered in layer-colored contours, revealing detailed political and topographical information about each of the 191 countries recognized by the United Nations
  • Page number indicators have been added throughout which, along with refined locator windows, allow for easy identification of adjacent map pages
  • Historical cross-references have also been added to the comprehensive 55,000-entry index, and a "Regions in the News" element highlights those geographic areas that have struggled with strife and turmoil over the last twelve months
  • Thematic maps illustrate local ethnic populations and occupied territories, helping to decode some of the issues plaguing Colombia, Afghanistan, and Kashmir.
