Reviews - What do our customers think?
Fantastic resource!  Oct 15, 2003
Ignore the clueless School Library Journal review. This atlas is perfect for basic reference and school projects. It is not intended to be a highly detailed ultra-refined reference work, and it is confusing to see people faulting it for that. Most maps are on ONE page (a miracle!), with small but helpful topographic, land use and agricultural maps. For the U.S. maps, state flags are reproduced, and basic state facts and gazetteers are along side the maps. This is an affordable, very useful basic atlas, with wonderfully clear maps that have county boundaries, county seats and larger cities clearly marked. Highly recommended for use at work, school or home.
AtlasT :)  Dec 29, 2002
though i'm not a connoisseur of atlases, this atlas has many different features, such as the population of countries, etc. i recommend it to travelers, those interested in geography, and those in need of a good atlas
Best and Most Comprehensive Political Reference Atlas  Apr 9, 2002
Let me begin with some minor critical points: I believe that, for the book's price, the color quality is primitive and tacky. Also, a portion of the maps are too small.

That said, however, there are several qualities that make this, in my opinion, the finest World Atlas ever printed:

One: if you enjoy atlases for precise political detail, the Hammond Citation Atlas is the most precise of them all. After surveying every atlas in Borders and Barnes & Noble, I found that 99% of the "prettier" and more expensive books failed to present the political subdivisions of nations, except the US, Canada, sometimes Australia, and, once in a blue moon, Mexico. Hammond Citation, on the other hand, gives you EVERYTHING, no over-simplification, no mediocrity, no pretty but academically useless movie-poster maps. If you believe, as I do, that reference books should provide reference, this fine volume is the only one that fits that bill.

Two: This Atlas does not ignore the existence of small territories, as many of the "finer" atlases do. If you want to find St. Helena (UK) in the South Atlantic, by George, you will find it. I have great respect for Rand McNally, a source of good atlases. Unfortunately, they often don't place Navassa Is. (US), south of Guantanamo, anywhere on earth. Details such as those are the reason I appreciate Hammond.

Three: This book does not run its maps into the book seam. I cannot put into words what an importance difference this makes.

Four: Most of the maps are excellently proportioned. A few of them are uncomfortably small, like the Caribbean, but these belong to a very small minority.

Five: Outside of National Geographic maps, which I consider the best, Hammond's color scheme for political maps is the most clear, logical, useful, and pleasing to the eye. Political maps are their finest accomplishment.

I wholeheartedly recommend this book for those who appreciate concise and precise geographic knowledge in an affordable format, and reject prettier but unscholarly maps in an expensive book you can't use.
You get what you pay for  Feb 15, 2002
I have had an older version of this atlas for years, but bought an updated paperback for a class I am currently taking. As a geography major, I have had looks at a lot of different atlases.
This one is basically worth what you pay for, which isn't much at all.

The premise of this atlas is great: it includes side by side political and topographical maps for the same area, with alphabatized lists of a country's larger cities and physical features, AND a little chunk of facts on area, population, etc.

However, all this data is shoved into 2 pages, which leaves the maps small, with an inch occasionally equaling 1000 miles! That is a horrid scale, and limits the amount of information you can put into a map. That also means the type font is small, not only on the maps, but in the lists, too. The atlas could also be printed larger - as my older edition is -because its currently the standard 8" x 10".

The maps themselves are decent, but in the topographical and the occasional land use map, the color schemes are outdated, and it can be hard to differentiate the different altitude levels, or land use categories. Thankfully Hammond was smart enough to not do my number one pet peeve: Maps that extend on to the next page do NOT fall into the book seam. Thank God.

This atlas may be most appropriate for young students, who frequently have to look at one country at a time in their studies. But keep in mind that it is not catered to learning about resident cultures, which other youth oriented atlases are.

An old friend  Oct 15, 2001
Forget School Library Journal. I've had a version of this same atlas for 25 years, and when it became outdated--I looked until I found an updated version. Why? Because this Atlas has so much information, so clearly printed and accessibly arranged, that I couldn't find a comparable book (in the same size) without getting an updated version of the same thing. I just couldn't buy anything else until I found my old friend. One of the very great virtues of this book is that it's fully packed with info and doesn't weigh a ton. Great as a reading reference for light history or heavy fiction.
