Reviews

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'.
