The last few years have seen tremendous change in the politics of Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America. Entirely revised and updated, An Atlas of World Affairs describes the people, factions and events that have shaped the modern world from the World War II to the present day.

This edition places international issues and conflicts in their most recent geographical contexts through the integration of close to one hundred maps. Discussion of issues new to this edition include the breakup of the Soviet Union, Czechoslovakia, the expansion of the European Union, the reshaping of South Africa, and the pressing environmental concerns of nations. Revised and in print since 1957, this source will prove invaluable for all interest in post-war political history and current affairs.
