Atlas of the Middle East

This full-color atlas provides more than topographic maps of the Middle Eastern states. Each country profile provides population demographics as well as data about the economy and religion. It also overlays each nation state on an image of the 48 contiguous United States so that American readers will better understand their relative size. There are focus maps of major cities such as Baghdad, Cairo, and Jerusalem which highlight major streets, political buildings, museums, universities, and gardens. A section on regional themes looks at the entire Middle East region, providing data and images on population, climate, religion, ethnicity, linguistic group, oil production, water resources, and other developmental factors. Additional maps and timelines provide historical information about the region, emphasizing the 20th century.
