When Oxford's Atlas of the World debuted, it was widely praised for the incredible beauty and accuracy of its maps and for its wealth of geographical information. Now in a new Seventh Edition, it remains the finest top-of-the-line atlas available, with hundreds of stunning full-color, large-format maps produced by Europe's finest cartographers. In addition, the Atlas boasts 66 maps of major metropolitan areas worldwide, an extensive index, and a colorful 48-page Introduction to World Geography, providing a wealth of information on such topics as climate, the greenhouse effect, plate tectonics, agriculture, population and migration, global conflicts, and much more.
The Seventh Edition has been thoroughly updated. The revisions include the new administrative areas in Poland and Nigeria; new maps of Kosovo and of the No-Fly Zone in Iraq (added to the "Regions in the News" section); and sharper, digital lettering that is easier to read. Finally, roads and rail lines have been reconfigured on some thirty maps, including all areas of North America, South America, and Australia.
Providing the finest global coverage available, Atlas of the World is the benchmark by which all other international atlases will be measured.

Grade 6 Up-This edition retains most of the features found in Oxford Atlas of the World (2004), including beautiful aerial photographs of cities and landforms; a World Geography section filled with nicely presented maps, graphs, and charts illustrating geographic principles and providing information on urban areas around the world; and more than 250 pages of colorful and informative maps that combine physical and political features. The format of the World Statistics section has changed from a table to a map, and there are some new satellite images, map scales, and perspectives. Other additions to the deluxe edition include detailed maps of the oceans and ocean floors and 22 American and Canadian cities, and expanded coverage of the states and provinces of Australia, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean Basin, and the U.S. Unfortunately, the gazetteer and city map index, both quite helpful, have been dropped. While this attractive and informative resource is an excellent choice for libraries looking to expand their atlas collections, those that own the previous edition will find that the few extras here aren-™t enough to warrant purchase.-Mary Mueller, Rolla Junior High School, MO
