Cartograms are digitally modified maps that enlarge or reduce areas of the globe to reflect statistical data. This flexibound atlas contains 382 such cartograms in full colour, depicting a broad range of topics: population, transport, natural resources, trade, food sources, health, wealth and poverty, war, crime, the environment and pollution. This revised second edition includes 16 new maps on the world’s religious beliefs. The result is a powerful and surprising visual presentation of the way people live around the world. Slightly off-mint.
