National Geographic Atlas of Chinaby National Geographic
Synopses & Reviews
Boasting more than 300 full-color maps and illustrations, this essential atlas dramatically highlights the tremendous changes occurring within China—the worlds fastest growing economy and most populous place—as well as their global implications. National Geographic maps the entire country with sections covering all provinces—including towns, cities, and transportation networks—to provide rich, comprehensive, and meticulously researched coverage of Chinas dynamic landscape.
Ten major cities receive an entire spread with detailed maps and fact boxes. And as Shanghai prepares to host the 2010 Worlds Fair—Chinas first, expected to draw 70 million visitors—this important destination is charted extensively as well.
Fascinating thematic maps accurately post the latest information on trade, energy, natural resources, population, military strength, religion, languages, tourism, transportation, and more. A substantial place-name index helps the reader navigate to thousands of specific locations. A historical time line, commentaries, graphs, travel info, and photos complete the thorough yet succinct coverage of todays China.
For the millions of vacationers who tour the country each year, companies doing business with China, students of history and geography, and others interested in world events, this timely reference will prove indispensable.
