Publisher Comments:

With one hundred pages of superbly crafted maps covering the globe, the Essential World Atlas highlights the best aspects of Oxford's atlas line in a handy and affordable paperback format. Now in its fourth edition, the Atlas has been expanded to include island maps of Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, St. Lucia, the Virgin Islands, Barbados, the Whitsunday Islands, Singapore, Pinang, Ko Phuket, Ko Samui, and Bali. New to the Atlas is the World in Focus thematic section, which contains 32 pages about our planet's human and natural systems. In addition, the Atlas has been redesigned with a new cover, and a fresh interior layout, making it more user-friendly than ever. The locator maps have been improved and tabs indicating adjacent map pages have been included to make cross-referencing more efficient.

Meticulously crafted and thoroughly updated, the Essential World Atlas Fourth edition continues to be an indispensable resource.

New national parks in Norway, Turkey, South Africa, Uganda and Costa Rica

New international airports added in Congo, Cape Verde Islands, Philippines, Korea, and India
