The State of the World Atlas Reviews

"The State of the World Atlas is something else - an occasion of wit and an act of subversion." New York Times "No-one wishing to keep a grip on the reality of the world should be without these books." International Herald Tribune "A super book that will not only sit on your shelf begging to be used, but will also be a good read. Its inventive brilliance deserves enormous rewards." New Scientist "Unique and uniquely beautiful...A single map here tells us more about the world today than a dozen abstracts or scholarly tomes." Los Angeles Times
