A New Atlas of China, published several years ago, is still the best atlas of that area that has been issued. I've hoped she would do one of Europe -- and here it is. Not an atlas for following the shifting line of battle, but an atlas for interpreting the geographical, ethnological, industrial, agricultural problems of world peace. The first part of the text presents Europe as a whole and its overall problems of resources, boundaries, communications and industrial development. Each European country is then analyzed along similar lines, briefly. The scope of the book is enormous -- the handling in text and maps and diagrams gives it great background worth.
