Description
Who killed the Dead Sea? Does the World Bank have ATMs? What's so bad about the Badlands? Was there an Atlantis? Is all the talk of global warming just a lot of hot air? First published in 1992, this follow-up to Kenneth Davis's wildly popular Don't Know Much About History is a lively and entertaining question-and-answer voyage around an unexpectedly fascinating world, peppered with cartoons and quotes. In this updated and expanded edition, Davis explores 21st-century topics of global concern, including the role of the Internet and technology in transforming the lives of people around the world, how so-called developing nations develop, and the debates over climate change and evolutionary science.

"Any efforts to save the U.S. public from geographic illiteracy should certainly be encouraged. Davis attempts to achieve this goal with a cheerful writing style, a varied format—e.g., cartoons, text, milestones in geography, and quotations from fascinating travel writings of previous centuries—and an environmentalist bent.... [The book] begins with a historical overview of geography, then moves to mountains, oceans, early human history, climate, and space, and closes with a bibliography (including a list of books for children) and an index."—Library Journal
