The State of the World Atlas: Sixth Edition (Penguin Reference)
Distinctive yet accessible, these full-color maps and graphics afford readers a unique view of current international affairs by translating key political, economic, and social indicators into readily grasped visual form."Unique and uniquely beautiful, " previous editions of this atlas have told us "more about the world today than a dozen statistical abstracts or scholarly tomes" (Los Angeles Times). In addition to the many topics covered in the previous edition -- population growth and migrations; pressures on the environment; military spending and the arms trade; racism and gender politics -- this new edition includes presentations on stock markets, state crimes, superpowerdom, ethnicity and multiculturalism, the Internet, digital media, and more. For a concise yet comprehensive survey of the world today, The State of the World Atlas is unmatched.
