The State of the World Atlas
Ninth Edition

This unique book, a milestone of graphic reporting, has become a trade reference classic since its first publication in the 1970s. Completely revised and updated, the new 9th edition of this groundbreaking 'atlas with attitude' keeps pace with the speed of change, using over 100 thematic world maps and vivid graphics to break down hardcore statistics into accessible, compelling form.

Widely praised for its ingenious design and statistically meticulous presentation of trends, The State of the World Atlas graphically analyses every key indicator and vital statistic of modern life, from wealth and power, war and peace through to rights, health and the environment.
Authored by leading international peace researcher Dan Smith, it has sold over 700,000 copies in different languages around the world, offering its sharp analysis and informed comment on the most challenging issues facing the world today.

Dan Smith is Secretary General of International Alert, based in London, and former Director of the International Peace Research Institute, Oslo (PRIO). In 2007-2011 he was Chairman of the UN Peacebuilding Fund Advisory Group. He is also author of The Atlas of War and Peace and The State of the Middle East. He was awarded the OBE in 2002, and blogs on international politics at www.dansmithsblog.com
