The State of the World Atlas

This book, published by New Internationalist, features over 50 thematic world maps which graphically analyse every key indicator and vital statistic of modern life, from wealth and power, war and peace through to rights, health and the environment.

Written by international peace researcher Dan Smith, it provides analysis and informed comment on the most challenging issues facing the world today. A really useful reference source for students and teachers researching global issues.

Themes are grouped into six categories:

  • Who We Are
  • War & Peace
  • Health of the People
  • Health of the Planet
  • Wealth & Poverty
  • Rights & Respect.

Some of the maps from this book have been turned into infographics, which could be used in the classroom. These can be viewed on New Internationalist’s Pinterest site.
