- Waterproof - Tear-Resistant - Travel Map There are few nations as vast and spectacularly diverse as the United States of America. From the Atlantic to the Pacific, "America the Beautiful" offers boundless destinations and experiences for travelers seeking outdoor adventures, small town delights, or the excitement of urban culture. The United States Northeast Adventure Map will guide you through the states of the Mid Atlantic region (Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey) and New England (Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine). Each of these states is rich in history and nature and has its own distinct character, from the dramatic rocky shoreline of Maine's Acadia National Park and the beaches and dunes of Cape Cod Massachusetts, through the Adirondack Mountains of New York, the White and Green Mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont, and the rolling Allegheny and Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. The diverse megalopolis of Washington DC, Philadelphia, New York City, and Boston that covers the Atlantic coastal plain is interspersed with historic seaports and beautiful parks, beaches, marshes, and bays including Chesapeake and Delaware Bays. The inland cities of Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Albany are also included on this map. There is simply no better map for exploring the Northeast United States. National Geographic's US Adventure Maps provide the most authoritative and convenient travel maps available to plan and guide your USA Adventure. Each map delivers the perfect combination of detail and perspective, highlighting travel routes, topography, and points of interest for those venturing beyond the city centers.

This extensive work explores the changing world of religions, faiths and practices. It discusses a broad range of issues and phenomena that are related to religion, including nature, ethics, secularization, gender and identity. Broadening the context, it studies the interrelation between religion and other fields, including education, business, economics and law. The book presents a vast array of examples to illustrate the changes that have taken place and have led to a new world map of religions. Beginning with an introduction of the concept of the “changing world religion map”, the book first focuses on nature, ethics and the environment. It examines humankind’s eternal search for the sacred, and discusses the emergence of “green” religion as a theme that cuts across many faiths. Next, the book turns to the theme of the pilgrimage, illustrated by many examples from all parts of the world. In its discussion of the interrelation between religion and education, it looks at the role of missionary movements. It explains the relationship between religion, business, economics and law by means of a discussion of legal and moral frameworks, and the financial and business issues of religious organizations. The next part of the book explores the many “new faces” that are part of the religious landscape and culture of the Global North (Europe, Russia, Australia and New Zealand, the U.S. and Canada) and the Global South (Latin America, Africa and Asia). It does so by looking at specific population movements, diasporas, and the impact of globalization. The volume next turns to secularization as both a phenomenon occurring in the Global religious North, and as an emerging and distinguishing feature in the metropolitan, cosmopolitan and gateway cities and regions in the Global South. The final part of the book explores the changing world of religion in regards to gender and identity issues, the political/religious nexus, and the new worlds associated with the virtual technologies and visual media.
