Created by three of the team behind the renowned website worldmapper.org this book is an invaluable learning resource for home reference, schools, universities, journalists, business people and other professionals. It presents 366 digitally modified maps depicting the areas and countries of the world not by their physical size, but by their demographic importance on a vast range of subjects ranging from population, health, wealth and occupation to how many toys we import and who's eating their vegetables.

The reader can glean historical, current and future trends in areas such as population, biodiversity and trade. Each map is accompanied by graphs, charts, tables and a full text commentary. The Atlas of the Real World is ideal for everyone who wants to understand how their country or region fits into the new world order.
