The world map has changed dramatically since the publication of the ninth edition of An Atlas of World Affairs. This tenth edition has been thoroughly revised and updated, placing international issues and conflicts in their most recent geographical contexts through the integration of a hundred maps. Material on new issues includes: * the break up of the Soviet Union, Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia
* expansion of the European Union
* the political reshaping of South Africa
* the pressing environmental concerns faced by many of the new soveriegn states.
An Atlas of World Affairsrevised and in print since 1957 has proved an invaluable guide to the people, factions and events that have shaped the modern world from the second world war to the present day.
