People and Places: A 21st-century atlas of the UK, by Danny Dorling and Bethan Thomas (Policy Press, 2016).

How can very recent UK trends in the years 2011-2015 be understood in the context of detailed maps of social change in the 10 years between 2001 and 2011? This unique atlas, the third in the series, uses a wealth of up-to-the minute data sources alongside 2011 Census data. It shows national and local trends and provides analysis of the implications of these for future policy.

Packed with at-a-glance data tracking the period from boom to bust and beyond to the new Conservative government of 2015, key features include the analysis of over 100,000 demographic statistics and the use of new cartographic projections and techniques, all laid out in an attractive and accessible format.

Put together, this is the most accessible guide to social change over the past 15 years, and is essential reading for all those working in local authorities, health authorities, and statutory and voluntary organisations, as well as for researchers, students, policy makers, journalists and politicians interested in social geography, social policy, social justice and social change. This is the only social atlas of the 2011 Census that explains so much about how all of the UK is changing.
