School Library Journal Review

The Oxford Desk Reference Atlas is distinguished from the larger Oxford titles in that it does not use relief shading (see "Scouting Expedition," p. 42). But it shares the others' use of relatively deep colors for the hypsometric and bathymetric tints. The thematic maps in the front section are very smallÄmost of the space around them is taken up by text, charts, graphs, and photos. Despite its smaller index, the Desk Reference contains more useful geographic information than the other small-format atlas, the DK Concise World Atlas. If you want or need a small atlas, this is the best choice. Otherwise, you're better off with a full-size atlas. (c) Copyright 2010.
