5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing like a good map, November 29, 2012
This review is from: Atlas of the World (Hardcover)
To see where you have gone, where you are going, and where you dream of going. Not to mention those places mentioned on the nightly news you want to stay away from.

I just love poring over a good map, and this book is full of them.

Oxfords Atlas of the World is a solid, lovely book. It is updated on a yearly basis, so your book will have all those places we didn't learn about in High School.

Besides regions and nations, the Atlas also has maps of cities- not very good for driving of course, but still useful.

Now the Atlas has also added stunning satellite photography.

This book makes a great present- even if you have to buy it for yourself!

Looks like an interesting and well detailed book. Good Review.

Unfortunately it is out of my price range.

Man, I love a good map. With the US, I eagerly await each year's new Rand McNally Road Atlas. So this review gets my excitement up!

The way things are going, we need an eAtlas to change borders in real time.

Wulfie, I"m with you. I have several antique maps and love looking at them every day. I bought several long ago published map books on the earliest of cartography. I can't figure out why more time isn't spent in schools helping the kids to understand geography in the truest and deepest sense. We are dying breed I think.

Geography is a subversive attempt by leftists to understand places and their peoples over the next hill. Once you begin to appreciate the interplay of geography and culture, who knows what terrifying things could happen. We nurse our little Xenophobias.
