Reviews

'The atlas serves as a useful reference, valuable for its clarity and wealth of information.' - www.museo-on.com

'...as a cheap, up to date, nearly pocket-sized guide to a little-known area of enormous geopolitical importance, this book is unrivalled. It seems to me that most public reference libraries, and academic libraries catering for courses in geography, history, politics or international relations, ought to consider it for acquisition.' - Martin Guha, Reference Reviews

'...contains a wealth of clear and easily accessible information; it is a bold attempt to describe and graphically illustrate the history of a complex region and the author is to be warmly congratulated for it. The paperback atlas is an affordable and worthy addition to any library.' Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society
