 Over 50 full-colour world maps and graphics break down hardcore statistics to provide a compelling analysis of all the political, social, economic and ecological nightmares that keep us awake at night.

  • The world's car population has grown five times as fast as the human population over the last 50 years.
  • Wal-Mart's sales revenue exceeds the GDP of 150 countries.
  • Climate change may put 2.7 billion at risk of armed conflict.
  • Germany generates more tourists than anywhere else.
  • Americans use 160 times more water than people in Rwanda.
If you want to get behind the headlines and understand the world – from urbanisation to globalisation, terrorism to tourism, military spending to human rights – The State of the World Atlas is unmatched.


 Dan Smith is Secretary General of International Alert, based in London, and former Director of the International Peace Research Institute, Oslo (PRIO). In 2002 he was awarded an OBE. He is also author of The Atlas of War and Peace and The State of the Middle East.
