"This latest edition of a longstanding classic contains concise information on each U.S. county's area, population, date of creation, and name origin. Unlike previous editions, counties and other first-order subdivisions - independent cities, boroughs, census areas - are presented in a single list, and greater attention is paid to county name origins.
