This includes a general linguistic history of the area detailing the genetic relations of the languages and their characteristic features. Sociolinguistic and statistical data (including population figures) are given - often shown in tabular form for ease of use. This is followed by bibliographies of both classic and new publications, directing the reader to additional sources for further research. Detailed colour maps for the final part of each section and begin with a key map which shows at a glance how the region is divided. Unique time-of-contact maps for Australia and the Americas show the effect, over time, of contact with Western civilization on the linguistic profile of these regions. Concluding the work is the alphaetically arranged language index of over 4,000 languages, which lists both map number and language number for ease of access. The Atlas is an essential resource for all students, teachers and researchers in language and linguistics. In addition, it will be a valuable source for other areas of study, such as ethnography, cultural history, anthropology and geography.
