"Now in its Twelfth Edition, the Atlas of the World distinguishes itself as a trustworthy atlas, with hundreds of full-color maps produced by Europe's finest cartographers. Replete with 67 maps of cities worldwide, charting the key urban centers of each continent from Athens to Wellington, the real success of this reference rests on 176 pages of world maps, providing detailed political and topographical information about every nation on Earth, enhanced by relief shading and layer-colored contours. A 48-page Introduction to World Geography section - illustrated with maps, charts, and graphs - summarizes an abundant number of topics such as climate, plate tectonics, agriculture, population and migration, and global conflicts in a clear, concise fashion. As in past editions the Atlas has been fully updated to reflect the changing world around us." "The Twelfth Edition also boasts several new features.
