I got a book today called "Trouble Spots - A Strategic World Atlas", that does pretty much the same thing - put out by the London Centre for Strategic Studies.

one very nice thing about the book, is that for every hotspot, it gives the sources used, and a easy to follow system that highlights websites and so forth.

only problem is it was published in 2002

But that can be quite interesting as well, to see how potential conflicts was perceved three years ago and how quickly things change. Just look att books on the subject published before 9/11, its tha same world but its potrayed a whole lot different.

Great site! And the_redstar_swl, thanks for the tip about the CIA World Fact Book. I am taking Extended Campus courses through Embry-Riddle, and this summer I am taking an intelligence course in which I need to produce and maintain an intelligence portfolio on a selected country. These items will certainly be VERY handy!

Yep, its funny when you get a crap map from the gas station, and compare it to the cia one of Finland!

Theirs is soo much better!!!

As a poor mans atlas, best there is.

And , for military enthusiasts, there is something to chew on about every country...

Post For those new to forums:

Three of my favorites:

GlobalSecurity.Org - A non-partisan general resource including official US and foreign documents, field manuals, procurement data, etc. Hundreds of links to other resources.

FAS.Org - While these guys are generally anti-nuclear, they have a pretty cool nuclear weapons effects simulator [nuke the city of your choice] and other calculators available.

Institute of Land Warfare at AUSA.Org - A large collection of essays and documents that look at Army force development, manpower, and other high level issues. Other parts of the site include the annual Green Book snapshot of the Army as a whole.
