Detailed profiles and authoritative, full-color maps of every country in the world fill the completely updated Fourth Edition of the Encyclopedic World Atlas
. Containing the same outstanding relief mapping featured in Oxford's other atlases, this atlas is a comprehensive, easy-to-use, and invaluable resource for project work, research, or as a general home or library reference.
Each country features its own map, reference tables with abundant statistics on industry, commerce, culture, and demographics, and a fascinating essay describing the country's landscape, culture, history, and economy. In addition, a 32-page "Introduction to World Geography" features brand new satellite images throughout and a wealth of colorful maps, charts, and graphs which provide an integrated look at our world. The convenient country-by-country format, combined with an extensive 25,000-entry index, make this the ideal reference for any family.
