This is a Must Book from the angle of the man who is visual minded, map-minded. Here is a series of world maps, so patterned that they form a composite picture of (1) world events, in changing the shape of geographical limits in the last few years; (2) world governments, populations, races, waterways, economics. The world's hot spots. Europe- America- Asia- Africa- the Caribbean- the Pacific. Raw products and our interdependence, our deficiences of critical moment in national defense. Brief text, to the point; clear cut maps, each achieving one specific aim. A valuable book, well indexed.
