Over 50 full-colour world maps and graphics break down hardcore statistics to provide a compelling analysis of all the political, social, economic and ecological nightmares that keep us awake at night.

- The world's car population has grown five times as fast as the human population over the last 50 years.
- Wal-Mart's sales revenue exceeds the GDP of 150 countries.
- Climate change may put 2.7 billion at risk of armed conflict.
- Germany generates more tourists than anywhere else.
- Americans use 160 times more water than people in Rwanda.

If you want to get behind the headlines and understand the world - from urbanization to globalization, terrorism to tourism, military spending to human rights - The State of the World Atlas is unmatched.
