Collins World Watch A Visual Guide to the Current State of the World by Collins Maps

A dynamic visual guide packed with fascinating facts about the world. Get to grips with geography through more than 100 easy-to-read visualizations of world issues. Colourful, informative and fun to use, Collins World Watch will help you understand all the major issues from around the globe at a glance, without the need to read through long texts or analysing statistics. Topics include: * climate change * natural resources * population growth * health and education * poverty * energy * food and agriculture * megacities * migration Each topic is presented using maps, tables, graphs, fact boxes and photographs which illustrate the stories behind the statistics. This new edition contains 16 brand new infographic spreads drawn from the authoritative statistics of the World Bank's World Development indicators.


Praise for World Watch from the Geographical Association: Each lively spread is packed with up to date and relevant information, displayed in varied ways. The final section relates statistics to indicators of development and the Millennium development goals. It provides a useful glossary. The book is well organised into key sections that will support modern geography GCSE and A level specifications. Dr Stephen Scoffham says: I think this atlas is great. I really like the balance of maps, text, photographs and diagrams on each spread. Not only does this make the material engaging, the different media compliment each other and provide real 'dialogue'.
