The Concise Dictionary of World Place Names gives the history, meanings and origin of an enormous range of country, region, island, city, and town anmes from across the world, as well as the name of the local language. It includes key historical facts associated with many place names, selected former names, and, where appropriate, some historical detail to explain the transition.
In addition to the entries themselves, the dictionary includes two fascinating appendices: a glossary of foreign word elements which appear in place names and their meanings, and a list of personalities and leaders from all over the world who have influenced the naming of places.
Containing over 8,000 entries of current names of countries, regions, islands, and cities, the Concise Dictionary of World Place Names is a unique and fascinating guide for geographers, travelers, and all with an interest in current world affairs.
