Like a steady, reliable friend. I have used this book as a reliable geographical reference for years and never found it wanting. Both historic and modern places and geographic features are included. I have found everything I needed, from Ash Flat to Pskov.
The appendix contains a thorough table of geographical terms in languages other than English, as well as a useful glossary. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0877795460, Hardcover)

Since 1970 South Africa ended apartheid; Jean-Bertrand Aristide was elected president of Haiti, deposed by military coup then reinstated; San Francisco suffered a major earthquake; and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics dissolved. So it's a good thing Merriam-Webster updated its geographical dictionary to include more than 48,000 alphabetically arranged entries of mountains, lakes, towns, and countries. The third edition had a lot of catching up to do, what with the social, political, financial, and physical upheavals that have taken place since the second edition was published, and the result is a modern and sophisticated reference.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:15:46 -0400)

A comprehensive guide to the key political and physical features of today's world.
