Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Praise for Dan Smith’s other atlases:

The State of the World Atlas is something else—an occasion of wit and an act of subversion. These are the bad dreams of the modern world, given color and shape and submitted to a grid that can be grasped instantaneously.”—New York Times

“A compact, versatile and politically imaginative work of reference.”—New Statesman

About the Author

Dan Smith is Secretary-General of International Alert and former Director of the International Peace Research Institute, Oslo. He is author of The State of the World Atlas and The Atlas of War and Peace.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By David Crumm on October 2, 2008
FIRST: A very important note! As I file this review today, I see 2 other reviews on Amazon, both written in 2007. Those comments -- one praise and one criticism -- are NOT referring to this new edition released in late 2008.

With this new edition in print, I say:

Bravo to Dan Smith and the atlas gurus at the University of California Press. As a journalist specializing in covering religion and culture for leading U.S. newspapers for more than 30 years, I can tell you: It's volumes like this one that people should keep on their personal quick-reference shelves. That's especially true for preachers, teachers, small-group leaders, students -- and, really, anyone who cares about accurately understanding our turbulent world.

One sign of how much Smith and the University of California Press care about the accuracy of their work is the fact that this is a new Revised and Updated Second Edition of the book, coming quickly on the heels of the first. Smith is head of a UK-based peacemaking group International Alert. He has created other important reference works, including "The Atlas of War and Peace." The Press is publishing an entire series of innovative atlases. Among my own favorites are "The Atlas of Religion" and "The Atlas of Food: Who Eats What, Where, and Why."

Americans have the illusion in the early years of this new century that we carry the world in our pockets 24-7 with our ultra-connected electronic devices.

Excellent. To the point. Easy to understand yet full of useful data. The author seems to know what data is highly useful to the reader and does not dwell too much on information that is nice to know but not particularly necessary for an overview on the middle east.
