Tobacco Atlas 3rd Edition

The Tobacco Atlas is intended for readers interested in the effect tobacco has on health, politics, economics, big business, corporate behavior, globalization, smuggling, tax, religion, allocation of resources, poverty, gender issues, human rights, children, human development, and the future.

This third edition of The Tobacco Atlas maps the history, documents the current situation, and predicts the future of the tobacco epidemic. The chapters illustrate that tobacco is not simply a matter of personal choice, but also involves a political and economic panoply of global social and demographic change, government policy, and corporate strategies, including tobacco industry activities such as smuggling, deceptive marketing, and evasion of corporate responsibility. This Atlas reflects the import-ance of multilateral approaches to reduce the epidemic, requiring action by the World Health Organization, other UN agencies, governmental and non-governmental organizations (NGO s), the private sector, and concerned individuals—in fact, the whole of civil society.
