Seasoned travelers and armchair enthusiasts like nothing better than a good atlas. HarperCollins UK has compiled an inexpensive one that includes all the necessary components of a quality cartographic reference source: scope, relevance, clarity, readability, accuracy, a well-organized table of contents, and a comprehensive index. The arrangement of information includes sections on abbreviations, demographics, economic groups, international organizations, time zones, biology and climate, travel and tourism, world communications, and historical details. There is also a segment on how to use the book. Each map contains a cornucopia of data, including relief, boundaries, physical features, capitals, cities and towns, and historic sites and parks. A good value for libraries looking for a user-friendly atlas.Larry R. Little, Penticton P.L., BC
