Where would you find the highest proportion of venomous animals? Which languages are in danger of extinction? And what country consumes the most sugar—and owns the most guns? Divided into three thematic sections: Land, Air and Sea; Human and Animal, and Globalization, this book of outside-the-box maps and infographics offers a fresh and truly global portrait of our fascinating, often surprising planet. Previously published under the title New Views, Alastair Bonnett's texts clarify the significance of these images, which chart asteroid strikes, continental drift, obesity rates, fertility, bird diversity, fast food franchises, edible insects, tropical diseases, the world nut trade, and Twitter relationships.
