The atlas consists of three parts—world thematic maps, physical-political regional maps (the main body), and a detailed reference section with information tables, an index/pronunciation guide listing over 30,000 names, and a subject index. The book covers such data as energy sources, natural hazards, nutrition and health care, land use, forest exploitation, temperature, languages and religions, ocean currents and wind directions, time zones, and land, ocean, and air transportation. The introduction explains map scale, map projections, Earth-sun relations and more. 9" x 11". Rand McNally. 400 pages. 22nd Edition. ©2010.
