'Pocket Geographica' is the ideal reference book for the office, the home, or for college and school libraries. It contains over 1000 pages of informative, accessible text on every country in the world, listed alphabetically for quick-find reference and illustrated throughout with full-colour photographs and world reference maps. It also includes Fact Files which provide location maps, national flaps, and at-a-glance key indicators for each country, including population, currency, GNP per capita, time zone, literacy rate, economic base and climate.
As well, the 'Pocket Geographica' includes extensive information on Earth evolution and place in space. It describes the universe, the solar system, evolution, tectonic plate movement, the environment, the climate, and the impact of civilisation. Each section is illustrated with thematic maps and clear, expository diagrams on topics such as vegetation, energy resources, population, and seismic activity. An additional feature is an illustrated global timeline, which describes evolutionary events in the six major regions of the world from millions of years ago, right up to the present.
