The latest edition of the indispensable reference book offers up-to-date information that reflects an ever-changing world, including maps of dozens of cities worldwide and the key urban centers of each continent, along with a wealth of information on climate, plate tectonics, agriculture, population, global conflicts, and the latest political, economic, and demographic statistics.

With the pace of change accelerating ever more rapidly each year--in population, climate, national borders, and many other areas--an out-of-date atlas can present a markedly inaccurate view of the world. Oxford's Atlas of the World is the only atlas of its type to be updated annually, offering the most current statistics, maps, images, and global information available today.
Filled with crisp cartography, spectacular satellite photographs, and a wealth of information on changing conditions around the planet, the Atlas of the World, Fourteenth Edition maps 69 cities and nearly 100 different regions at carefully selected scales to give a striking view of the Earth's surface. Opening with world statistics and a colorful 48-page Introduction to World Geography--beautifully illustrated with tables and graphs--this acclaimed resource provides details on such topics as climate, the greenhouse effect, global warming, plate tectonics, agriculture, population and migration, and global conflicts. As in years past, the Fourteenth Edition includes a wealth of new geographic information, including a new flag for Lesotho, the addition of Romania and Bulgaria to the European Union, a new region in Senegal and two provinces in Ecuador, plus the addition of national parks such as Lake Shkoder National Park in Montenegro and New Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park on the border of South Africa and Mozambique. Current census statistics accurately reflect the population of world cities, while stunning new satellite images illuminate a wide range of regions and urban areas around the world.
Fully updated to reflect the changing world around us, and including a promotional world wall map in every copy, the Atlas of the World is not only the best-selling volume of its size and price, it has become the benchmark by which all other atlases are measured.
