Product Description
With hundreds of dramatic, full-color, large-format maps produced by Europe's finest team of cartographers, the third edition of the New Concise World Atlas solidifies Oxford's position as the only publisher of regularly updated atlases at every desirable size and price.

Containing over 100 pages of the most up-to-date topographic and political maps, the New Concise World Atlas also features a unique overview of the planet's human and natural processes in photographs, accessible text, and thematic maps. Recent changes to the world's geography are thoroughly captured in this edition, including new national parks in Iceland, Turkey, and South Africa; a groundbreaking rail link joining North and South Korea; and the latest name forms in Somalia. Tribal areas in northwest Pakistan are mapped in greater detail, as are the aboriginal lands of Australia. Fully updated tables and world statistics provide data on climate, population, area, and physical dimensions that cannot be found in any other single reference source. Finally, an index with over 55,000 items make searching for lesser-known locales quick and easy.

Truly international in scope, created with meticulous care, and reflecting the very latest political developments and census information, this third edition of Oxford's New Concise World Atlas achieves the highest standard among international map resources. This engaging and affordable resource is second to none in the superb quality of its maps, the breadth of its coverage, and its easy-to-use convenience.

I bought this atlas because I wanted one as up-to-date as possible (in light of political boundaries and such), and wanted something to accompany a globe I have. There is a lot of useful information at the front of the atlas, so it's not just a book of maps. I use it for reference while taking classes for my masters (logistics and transportation) degree, and my stepson uses it for some of his high-school classes, as well. I think it's an atlas worth sharing with the family to learn geography.

I probably didn't read the product description very carefully, and I assumed that this concise atlas would be much smaller than it actually is. It's really the size of a coffee-table book, much larger than I had originally thought. However, the atlas itself is wonderful. It has information about the universe and the solar system, interesting articles about geography and beautiful colored maps. We've consulted ours many, many times in the couple of weeks that we've had it. The pages lay nice and flat, so you can study a map without struggling to hold the book open. This is a great book for settling geographical debates or for teaching young children about our world.

Format: Hardcover
I hadn't bought an atlas in a very long time, and a new one was way over-due. With all the changes in the world, my old one was pretty out-of-date. I finally decided on the Oxford one. I'm okay with it, but, while this one is a handsome book, has great maps and a lot of info on the planets, etc.., I really miss some of the features my old one had. My old atlas (a Rand-McNally) had cities/towns (and their population) listed with each map. For the U.S. it even listed zip codes for each town! With this new one, ALL the cities are listed in the back of the book, and there are no population stats. It's much less convenient than what I'm used to. I will keep it and use it, but I'm still searching.

I needed a really good World Atlas and I found it with this one. I use it all the time. It has a lot of really good information at the front of the atlas that has been most helpful when I am doing research. Use this atlas along with Google Earth and you don't need anything else.

This book is more than great. The color of it is very vibrant and the book is a great size. My dad was very pleased to have opened it on Christmas. It was well worth the money for sure!

Wonderfully comprehensive. As a retired Army officer, I wish I'd had this decades ago. Buy it. You won't need any other.

We use this atlas as a gift for our program speakers; and they are always delighted with it because it is something they like, but would not necessarily purchase for themselves. It is just packed with information, whether it be for research, learning, or browsing. It is a stimulus to view things around the world. It is well designed and the graphics are so beautiful.

Atlas is ok. Maps are bit small and overcrauded. There is not separated maps for every region, some of them important like Franch polynesia (Bora Bora, Tahiti), USA Samoa etc. I can use it but its not what i expected. On some point I will need better atlas becouse my wife and me like traveling alot.
