Packed with the latest statistics and filled with clear cartography, the Philip's RGS Atlas of the World gives a striking view of the Earth's surface and its many complexities and treasures.

"This atlas brilliantly captures what a precious and impressive place we live in." Michael Palin
" Beautifully put together, lavishly laid out. In a word - sumptuous!" Tim Marshall author of Power of Geography
"A veritable encyclopaedia of geographic and demographic information, profusely illustrated... Extraordinary." The New York Times

Nearly 200 pages of fully revised ultra-clear maps and satellite imagery reveal the full shape of Earth's surface.
