The early 1990s have seen enormous transformations in global geopolitics, and yet the life experiences of the worlds poor remain very little different from those experienced by their predecessors half a century, or even longer, ago. The Atlas of World Development is a collaborative project by leading researchers and scholars of the Developing Areas Research Group of the Institute of British Geographers and presents an original, stimulating and occasionally controversial graphic interpretation of the concepts and processes of world development. A particular feature of this atlas is its innovative cartographic presentation, both by its use of the Eckert IV map projection as a standard global base to depict spatial and areal relationship in a clearer way than is possible with more conventioal graticules, and its mapping of features and phenomena at a variety of scales from global to local, that have rarely, if ever, been shown graphically before. The global maps have been compiled and drawn specially for this book, and together with the clearly-written explanatory text and commentaries, provide a uniquely up-to-date, informed, and authoritative reference source on the present state of the world. By adopting a truly global perspective, this atlas, unlike others available, deals not just with developing countries, but with the whole world, demonstrating the inter-connected and vital nature of the development process for the whole of humanity.
