About this book

Here is our planet as you've never seen it before: 366 digitally modified maps - known as cartograms - depict the areas and countries of the world not by their physical size, but by their demographic importance on a vast range of topics, ranging from basic data on population, health, wealth and occupation to the number of toy imports and who's eating their vegetables. This compelling reference is an essential resource for anyone keen to understand the new world order, or who wants to make sense of the trends determining our planet's future.
