Eight thematic maps for each world region include information on topography, political divisions, habitats, climate, population density, industry, agriculture, and environmental issues. Fact panels and locator globes supplement each map. A 12-page opening section discusses the eight themes in light of current events and their effects on the world as a whole. Basic almanac facts and full-color flag illustrations are provided for every independent nation in the world. Originally published as the best-selling Complete Atlas of the World, this comprehensive resource presents the latest information about the world's geography, its people, and their impact on the environment.
