Over 300 historic and contemporary Infographics explaining our remarkable, fragile world

Gigantic and frail at the same time, our world keeps changing at high speed. New communication technologies have downsized the distances between far away continents. Data processing and network systems are changing our ways of living and working. Each second social networks are distributing myriads of information and news. Traditional mindsets are constantly being challenged and it is not easy to keep up with this evolution. 
This book presents a visual atlas of the world, focusing on the first quarter of the 21st century in a broad collection of information graphics, but also presenting many historical graphics from the last 150 years, putting our current situation into perspective. Divided into five big chapters, the book collects a cross-section of data from a variety of fields. How have political and economical weights shifted globally since the beginning of the century? How does the pending threat of climate change shape our thinking? 
More than 300 historic and contemporary infographics from sources such as Fortune, National Geographic, or The Guardian illuminate not just design professionals, they provide answers for everyone who is eager to understand how our world works. Nigel Holmes, one of the masters of information design introduces the book to the reader, and illustrated with over 20 images the historical essay by Sandra Rendgen frames how we have been looking at our world numbers for centuries.
