The Concise Geography Encyclopedia maps every corner of the world -- from the icy waters of Antarctica to the deserts of Africa, from the high mountains of the Americas to the snowfields and jungles of Asia. Each country is illustrated with a three-dimensional computer-generated map using the latest satellite data. Comprehensive information, including physical features, vegetation, highest mountains, coastlines, and cities, is featured, and expert text explains key facts and geographic influences that shaped each country. Basic information, such as area, population, flag, official language, currency, religion, and main exports, is given in fact panels at the beginning of each entry. An opening section, "The Physical Earth" provides an overview of all of the forces that have shaped the formation of the world over millions of years.
