Peters Compact World Atlas
"Your entire worldview will change once you study this unique atlas…The best part of this book, however, is the section "Nature, Man and Society in 246 Thematic Maps." Each presents a single subject expressed entirely in terms of color: dark for high values; light for low ones. This makes it easy to see and assimilate the maps' content--an important feature since up to 16 can be dedicated to a single subject. Moreover, over 40,000 pieces of individual information have been compiled for these 246 maps." ---USA Today (Magazine)
"An atlas to take us into the twenty-first century; an atlas that seems perfectly in tune with our growing spirit of internationalism." ---Publishing News, U.K.
"The Peters Atlas marks a great leap forward in our conception of the world - it should find a place on every bookshelf." ---Evening Telegraph, U.K.
"Never mind thrillers, give me an atlas for bedtime reading."---The Post, U.K.
"Astonishingly lifelike maps capture the beauty and the variety of the face of the earth"--Bookcase, U.K
"The Peters Atlas shows the world as we've never seen it before, removing Man's misconceptions of the geography of his planet."---Evening News, U.K.
