Finally correcting many long-standing misconceptions about the geography of our own planet, the Peters World Atlas presents one sixtieth of the Earth's surface as an astronaut's eye view on each double-page spread. Its unique use of colour and relief is intuitive, so jungles are green, deserts are brown, and mountains appear to bulge out of the page. Arno Peters unique method of mapping the planet is based on surface area, and depicts all the countries and continents on the Earth in the same proportion to each other that they actually have on the globe. The 43 magnificent main maps are arranged by continent, and all use the sames scale, thus giving each of the countries and continents equal representation. In addition to this, 242 thematic maps explore such topics as nature, society, global rainfall, birth control, marriage, weather, status of women, employment and military strength, among others. In full-colour.
