Written by Dan Smith

The State of the World Atlas Synopsis

This unique book, a milestone of graphic reporting, has become a trade reference classic since its first publication in the 1970s. Completely revised and updated, the new 9th edition of this groundbreaking 'atlas with attitude' keeps pace with the speed of change, using over 100 thematic world maps and vivid graphics to break down hardcore statistics into accessible, compelling form. Widely praised for its ingenious design and statistically meticulous presentation of trends, The State of the World Atlas graphically analyses every key indicator and vital statistic of modern life, from wealth and power, war and peace through to rights, health and the environment. Authored by leading international peace researcher Dan Smith OBE, it has sold over 700,000 copies in different languages around the world, offering its sharp analysis and informed comment on the most challenging issues facing the world today.

New Scientist Unique and uniquely beautiful...A single map here tells us more about the world today than a dozen abstracts or scholarly tomes. Los Angeles Times
