This encyclopedic view of our planet, fully revised and updated for the 8th edition, sets new standards in cartographic excellence. Created using the latest digital techniques and satellite data, high-definition map...s of the whole world are complemented by superb photographs, diagrams and topic maps. First published in 2001 and now in its 8th edition, this extensive atlas is an invaluable reference for home, school, and office. The opening section is a fascinating introduction to our world with a series of maps that illustrate its physical, political, economic, and demographic geography. The main section is a series of beautifully clear and concise maps that give a superb overview of the world's continents. Each page contains a wealth of extra information that helps to separate this atlas from so many others, including inset maps, photographs and text to help give a real flavour of the geography and culture of a region. New information in this edition includes everything from revised country names, such as eSwatini for Swaziland, to updated country statistics and population numbers. Linking all of this together is a fully cross-referenced index containing 80,000 place names, making Concise World Atlas a truly in-depth portrait of our planet.

            The Way to the Sea: The Forgotten Histories of the Thames Estuary
             

            The Way to the Sea: The Forgotten Histories of the Thames Estuary (Paperback)

            Caroline Crampton was born on the Thames Estuary to parents who had sailed there from South Africa in the early 1980s. Having grown up with seafaring legs and a desire to explore, Caroline is both a knowledgeable guide to the most hidden-away parts of this overlooked and unfashio...nable part of the country, and a persuasive advocate for its significance, both historically and culturally. As one of the key entrances and exits to England, the estuary has been pivotal to London's economic fortunes and in defining its place in the world. It has also been the entry point for immigrants for generations, yet it has an ambivalent relationship with newcomers, and UKIP's popularity in the area is on the rise. As Caroline navigates the waters of the estuary, she also seeks out its stories: empty warehouses and arsenals; the Thames barrier, which guards the safety of Londoners more precariously than we might; ship wrecks still inhabited by the ghosts of the drowned; vast Victorian pumping stations which continue to carry away the capital's sewage; the river banks, layered with archaeological Anglo-Saxon treasures; literature inspired by its landscape; beacons used for centuries to guide boats through the dark and murky waterways of the estuary; the eerie Maunsell army forts - 24 metre high towers of concrete and steel which were built on concealed sandbanks at the far reaches of the estuary during the Second World War and designed to spot (and shoot) at incoming enemy planes; and the estuary's wildlife and shifting tidal moods.

            In 1820, after millennia spent speculating and searching, humans laid eyes on Antarctica for the very first time. Since then, our relationship with this enigmatic land of ice and has continually evolved, from one of industry during the sealing and whaling eras, to exploration as ...pioneers charted undiscovered coastlines and forged perilous paths towards the South Pole. Today, the human relationship with Antarctica is defined by scientific endeavour, international collaboration and luxury tourism. The bicentenary of the first human sighting of Antarctica is an opportunity to reflect on our Antarctic legacy as the latest scientific research reveals the startling impacts that climate change in Antarctica could have on a global scale. Discover this remarkable continent covered in ice, where days endure for months, highways are built by penguins and shimmering lights illuminate the night sky.

Or a remote mountain massif in black rock or sandstone, hewn by the elements and marked in red ochre with the ...passage of ancient rock artists. Or a salt pan shimmering to a seemingly endless horizon. Welcome to the world's deserts, a realm of astonishing and dramatic beauty, as much places of the soul and the imagination as actual physical terrain.
