Desk Reference Atlas
Following the tremendous success of Oxford's acclaimed Atlas of the World, the popular Concise Atlas of the World, and the unique Encyclopedic World Atlas, comes a new addition to this outstanding line. Thoroughly up-to-date, comprehensive, and authoritative, the new Desk Reference Atlas offers the same exceptional map quality as Oxford's larger Atlas of the World in a handy, easy-to use, and affordable format.
Elegant full-color, digitally-produced maps are drawn from the latest available sources, including satellite feeds and the most recent surveys and censuses. The comprehensive maps reflect changes from the most recent Dayton Accord boundaries in Bosnia to the continuing revisions to place names in the former USSR, and ongoing work on railroads in Brazil and China. A colorfully illustrated 32-page thematic section covers timely topics from ranging from the solar system, volcanoes and earthquakes to international organizations, climate, and agriculture, and features useful statistics for countries around the world. An excellent 17,000-entry index adds to the indispensability of this volume, allowing quick and ready reference to any point in the world.
The Desk Reference Atlas's handy format and affordable price make it ideal for quick reference at home, in school, or at the office. No desk should be without it.
