Publisher Comments:

With superbly crafted maps covering the entire globe, this new edition of Oxford's Essential World Atlas offers thorough geographical coverage at an affordable price. In addition to a unique city-mapping program, the Essential Atlas features dozens of thematic maps, charts, and graphs that explain many fundamental concepts in human geography. The new Seventh Edition also includes coverage of up-to-the-minute political and topographical changes.

Essential World Atlas is packed with collateral information, such as statistics on the area, population, and annual income of every country in the world. Metro maps of dozens of cities provide detailed information on tourist attractions, public transportation, and other aspects of interest to the traveler. Enhancing its utility, the map section is fully indexed, allowing for quick reference. The Atlas also boasts a selection of stunning satellite images that provide an impression of our world from above, offering insight into how cities expand and rivers create life in the desert. Finally, the atlas includes a thematic "World in Focus" section, easy-to-use indices, survey data, and colorful illustrations of flags from around the world.

Meticulously crafted and thoroughly updated, the Seventh Edition of Oxford's Essential World Atlas is an indispensable resource for students, teachers, armchair travelers, tourists, and anyone else curious about the far-flung corners of the globe.
