Maps don’t just show us where to go, but also where we’ve been. A stunning overview of all human history, side by side with 140 custom maps. Learn how something like the printing press can define a time, or how the Allies in Europe could defeat the Nazis.
There is so much to read about in this remarkable history book, and just as much to look at. Maps are more than the topography of the Earth or the borders of countries. Maps can represent the movement of people and ideas, and they provide a unique way to explain historical themes and explore sweeping periods of time.
This stunning visual reference book starts with the evolution and migration of our oldest ancestors out of Africa. You can then look up maps about the Greece and Persian War, the Mongol Conquests, Medieval Europe’s trade routes, and the rise of the Ottomans.
There are maps about the colonization of North America, the scientific revolution, Napoleon’s advances, and Britain’s control of India. There’s more in later centuries, like the Age of Imperialism, the American Civil War, industrialized Europe, and the transformation of Japan.
