The Complete Illustrated Reference to Australia and the World.
Includes 'Geographica' CD-ROM.
This is an authoritative, comprehensive and fully illustrated reference guide to the world. With maps, photographs, illustrations and text, 'Geographica' will carry readers on a journey from outer space and Earth's place in the universe to the nations and cities, towns and even villages on the furthermost parts of the globe. An expert team of geographers, historians, anthropologists, astronomers, writers, editors and cartographers have worked together to create this valuable reference.
There are maps and detailed text on the world's 192 nations which are members of the United Nations and 65 dependencies and overseas territories. The fact files contain a wealth of carefully researched information for quick access to each nation's key indicators, such as form of government, infant mortality, literacy, ethnic diversity, religions, and economy, as well as basic data including official name, population, language, currency and climate.
