Clear, colourful, and crammed with information reflecting up-to-date world wide political changes, The Penguin Map of the World is a unique concept in maps. For the first time, Michael Middleditch’s revised third edition includes all the flags of the world and updated political boundaries. The perfect travelling companion, this clever guide is light and slim enough to slip easily into a pocket or small bag, yet packs in a wealth of invaluable information. For many years Michael Middleditch was chief cartographer at Geographia. He created the Mapguides especially for Penguin, and there are four award-winning and highly successful titles in the series- New York, Paris, London and the Map of the World.
