Full of maps of urban areas worldwide, the 13th edition adds Orlando, Florida, Las Vegas, Nevada, and Montreal, Quebec for a total of 70 cities. As ever, the colorful 48-page „Introduction to World Geography” section-beautifully illustrated with tables and graphs-provides a wealth of information on such topics as climate, the greenhouse effect, plate tectonics, agriculture, population and migration, and global conflicts. Plus, as in past editions, the Atlas has been thoroughly updated to reflect the changing world around us. The completion of the Tibet Railway linking Tibet with the rest of China, the opening of five new international airports, the appearance of new regions in Denmark and new provinces in Rwanda, and dozens of other improvements make this the most reliable atlas on the market. The 13th edition also boasts several new features: the latest nameforms in Korea and Greece, new maps of Ethiopia, Kazakhstan, Korea, and Taiwan, as well as additional map detail in Australia showing aboriginal areas. Current census statistics produce a table showing the most up-to-date population figures for major world cities, and a redesigned index makes searching the book easier than ever. Providing the finest global coverage available, the Atlas of the World is not only the best-selling volume of its type, it has become the benchmark by which all other atlases are measured.
