Review:

Praise for the 8th edition of The Penguin State of the World Atlas:

"The State of the World Atlas is something else—an occasion of wit and an act of subversion . . . These are the bad dreams of the modern world, given color and shape and submitted to a grid that can be grasped instantaneously." —The New York Times

"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

"A striking new approach to cartography . . . no-one wishing to keep a grip on the reality of the world should be without these books." International Herald Tribune

"Packed with fascinating facts and figures on everything from the international drugs industry to climate change." Evening Standard
