Synopsis

Philip's Modern School Atlas by

Britain's best-selling secondary school atlas, now in its 98th Edition, Philip's Modern School Atlas is an essential reference work for secondary education (14-18 year olds), suitable for Key Stage 4, GCSE, A-Level and international schools. The contents are divided into sections for ease of use, with each page colour-coded for rapid reference. A 12-page Remote Sensing section covers such topics as satellite imagery and GIS (with an explanation of false-colour usage), incorporating a selection of images used in studies of exploration, land reclamation, erosion, geology, pollution and urban regeneration, with explanatory text. The next section covers the United Kingdom and Ireland in 31 pages. With physically coloured maps, this is the most accurate mapping of the UK and Ireland available at the chosen scales - accompanying the physical maps are thematic maps on numerous key social and economic themes. The middle section is made up of 74 pages of World topographical maps, incorporating continental thematic maps on topics such as climate, population and economics, followed by 30 pages of World thematic maps. Completing the atlas is a section of World social and economic statistics, accompanied by the index to the topographical maps in the atlas, showing letter-figure grid references as well as latitude and longitude co-ordinates. Available in both hardback and paperback formats, Philip's Modern School Atlas 98th Edition is an unbeatable combination of highly detailed physical mapping backed up by numerous tables and thematic maps.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family
