Philip's Essential World Atlas 2019

Published in association with the Royal Geographical Society, the authoritative Philip's Essential World Atlas presents the world in cartography of exceptional quality. The 144 pages of physical and political maps - fully revised and updated - have been selected to provide balanced coverage of the continents, while giving prominence to densely populated and economically or strategically important areas. Projections and scales have been chosen to maximize legibility and minimize distortion over the largest regions. Acclaimed by geographers everywhere, Philip's physical maps combine relief shading with layer-coloured contours to give a stunning visual impression of the Earth's surface, while charting physical features, settlements and communications with meticulous accuracy. Included also is a superb 26-page 'Images of Earth' section, showing 25 of the world's most important cities and regions in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australasia and the Americas in breath-taking satellite imagery. In addition, the atlas features a series of fascinating maps depicting our ocean seafloors in stunning detail. Completing the atlas, and with full latitude and longitude co-ordinates along with letter-figure grid references, the extensive index of over 64,000 names includes geographical features such as mountains, rivers, lakes and deserts, as well as provinces, towns and cities.

Georgina Freedman
Authors:
Georgina Freedman

From the famed Crossing the Bridge Noodles to dishes like spiced chicken grilled in banana leaves, Cooking South of the Clouds will introduce cooks to a side of Chinese cooking still relatively unknown outside of the country itself. China's Yunnan Province is the most geographically, biologically and ethnically diverse region in China.Stretching from the Himalayan plateau to the subtropics, the province is home to thousands of species of plants and animals as well as twenty-four of China's minority groups. As a result, Yunnan is one of the most culinary interesting and delicious places on earth, with a wide variety of cuisines and flavours all packed into one small province. Each chapter in the book covers a different area featuring its classic recipes such as Tibetan momo dumplings from the north, grilled chicken with chillies and fresh herbs and the famed 'crossing-the-bridge' noodles from the south, fried rice with ham, potatoes, and peas from the east and roasted eggplant salad with tomatoes and herbs from the west, near the Burmese border. Complete with profiles of local cooks, artisans and farmers, as well as breath-taking location photography, Cooking South of the Clouds takes you on an unforgettable journey through the land of Shangri-La and presents a whole new world of flavours.
