The World Bank Atlas, 1995. 27th Edition.
World Bank, Washington, DC.
This twenty-seventh World Bank Atlas presents key social and economic information for every country on the globe organized under three headings, People, Economy, and Environment. The emphasis is on how these themes are important in the development process. A new addition is that of a new measure of GNP per capita converted at purchasing power parity (PPP) so as to offer an alternative view of a country's income level relative to others by using international prices to value domestic production. Of interest to educators: primary school enrollment rates and illiteracy rates are provided for every country (p.8-9) and a color coded map displays illiteracy rates worldwide (p.15). (EH)
