A Fact book and atlas of the world's peoples and languages from a mission perspective. It brings together the fruit of years of excellent research and information-sharing in the missions community about the world's more than 7,000 ethno-linguistic and ethno-cultural peoples. It integrates information from eight major databases of the languages and peoples of the world, some of which have only been exchanged privately among mission researchers. Rather than obtaining, converting, and searching each database separately, the best information is now available together in one place.
