About this book

Over 50 full-colour world maps and graphics break down hardcore statistics to provide a compelling analysis of all the political, social, economic and ecological nightmares that keep us awake at night.

* The world's car population has grown five times as fast as the human population over the last 50 years.
* Wal-Mart's sales revenue exceeds the GDP of 150 countries.
* Climate change may put 2.7 billion at risk of armed conflict.
* Germany generates more tourists than anywhere else.
* Americans use 160 times more water than people in Rwanda.

If you want to get behind the headlines and understand the world - from urbanization to globalization, terrorism to tourism, military spending to human rights - The State of the World Atlas is unmatched.

Review Quotes

'An essential snapshot of the trends shaping today's world.'
The Ecologist

'The State of the World Atlas is something else - an occasion of wit and an act of subversion. These are the bad dreams of the modern world, given color and shape and submitted to a grid that can be grasped instantaneously.'
New York Times

'Smith presents, without frills, all the essential facts and figures of what really counts in the world today. An assault on your night's rest!'
Argus

'A striking new approach to cartography... no one wishing to keep a grip on the reality of the world should be without these books.'
International Herald Tribune

'[The] Atlas provides a beautifully clear and fairly current overview of a whole series of factors relevant to understanding global trends and current events and concerns.'

Sustain - Built Environment Matters

'It's a marketer's dream and a forecaster's godsend: a cornucopia of facts, stats, trends, demographics and little-known data about the world and what goes on in it.'
The Information

'This is a comprehensive, highly informative and accessible reference work.' Scientific and Medical Review Network 'A very lively, beautifully produced set of maps which gives highly visual basic comparisons over a very wide range of examples. As such this is a great addition to any library making it one of the definite must-buys of the texts reviewed this year.'
Ecological and Environmental Education

'Covers with an acute and perspicacious narrative supported by clear illustrations the elements that make up our societies.'
Book Steps
