Description
Following the tremendous success of Oxford's Atlas of the World, which The New York Times hailed as "extraordinary," we proudly present the new, conveniently sized, and remarkably affordable Concise Atlas of the World. Truly international in scope, the Concise Atlas of the World offers comprehensive and fully up-to-date coverage of every area of the globe. Produced by Europe's most renowned cartographers, Oxford's Concise Atlas of the World contains the finest relief mapping available, with three-dimensional images of unsurpassed clarity and arresting beauty. The stunning array of political and topographical maps in the extensive World Map section have been made with carefully selected scales and projections to ensure maximum legibility and accuracy, and the 44,000-name general index has full geographical coordinates to make finding any town, region, or mountain range a remarkably easy task. Oxford sought the advice of educators and librarians from across the nation in creating the Concise Atlas of the World, so it contains a host of user-friendly and informative features, including a user guide, helpful graphics on map projections, a subject index, and representations of flags from around the world. The special 32-page United States map section offers an abundance of multicolored political, topographical, and climate maps, as well as close-ups of urban areas. In addition, the illustrated 32-page "Introduction to World Geography" section uses colorful charts and graphs to convey a wealth of information on topics ranging from the solar system, glaciers, and global warming to energy consumption, population density, and literacy rates. Created with meticulous care and reflecting the latest political developments and survey and census information, Oxford's Concise Atlas of the World achieves the highest standard among international map references. Distinguished in its map quality, detailed coverage, helpful organization, and truly global focus, the Concise is an indispensable and affordable resource for every home, school, library, or business.
