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)
