For the Incurably Curious
Where are the world’s highest mountains, its longest rivers, its deepest oceans? Which country is the largest producer of cinnamon, and how heavy is the world’s heaviest insect? With distinctive maps and a wonderful miscellany of information on subjects from ancient history to football, economics to endangered animals, every page in this unusual atlas is a voyage of discovery. There are maps of the world (including one showing the early explorers’ routes), whole continents, regions, countries and the oceans.

Atlas of Oceans
An Ecological Survey of Underwater Life
All life on Earth depends on the oceans and seas that cover two-thirds of its surface, but they are under threat as never before. Packed with maps and diagrams, and lavishly illustrated with colour photographs, this atlas explores the oceans' geology, their tides and currents, their diverse habitats and the array of creatures that live in them. Special features highlight environmental dangers such as pollution, overfishing and climate change, with information on endangered species and a useful glossary.

An Atlas of Countries That Don't Exist
A Compendium of Fifty Unrecognized and Largely Unnoticed States
Across the globe there are places without diplomatic recognition or UN membership, that function semi-autonomously and are considered countries by their inhabitants. They lie on the margin of legitimacy but, as this atlas shows, can be visited in the real world. Arranged by continent, the book presents maps and details of the size, political status, location, population and language of 50 shadow states, including Antarctica, Rapa Nui (an island annexed by Chile), and the breakaway Moldovan region of Transnistria.
