"An indispensable reference."
The Today Show

"A veritable encyclopedia of geographic and demographic information, profusely illustrated [...] Extraordinary."
The New York Times

"This authoritative volume is the standard by which others will be measured."
Boston Herald

"You can't do better than the Atlas of the World."
Chicago Tribune

"A page-turning stroll through the continents."
USA Today

"Flipping through this book is a lush experience, with new satellite imagery and more maps and graphs than you thought imaginable. Reading the Atlas is a little trip around the globe."
Kirkus

"The Oxford Atlas of the World includes, beyond the meticulously detailed topography of every surface on the globe, useful maps of nearly 70 major city centers as well as efficient mini-essays on everything from slums to the global scrap-metal industry. Among 17 beautiful satellite images of population centers, those of Beijing, with its concentric roads encircling the Forbidden City, and Honolulu, a city built atop an undersea volcano, invite the sustained attention we reserve for great works of art."
The Wall Street Journal

"It is, altogether, a handsome product, well-organized, thorough in its coverage, a graphic delight [...] This is a truly welcome product, a delight to hold, a delight to use."
