The book begins with a refresher on map skills and thematic maps of the world. The main section displays continents, regions, and countries with inset maps (industry, population, land use, landscape, climate, environmental issues), explanatory text, color photos, graphs, and keys. The index-gazetteer contains over 20,000 names for places and natural features. Endpapers show flags of the world and at-a-glance page numbers for regional maps.
