About 470 color world and regional maps, 1,000-plus photographs and illustrations, and roughly 420 timelines combine with the text to provide insight into the rise and fall of empires, the birth of nations, and the development of commerce, culture, language, and religion from ancient times to the present day. The two-tier structure presents both a comprehensive overview of human history and detailed region-by-region narratives. Part One portrays and analyzes major aspects of the changing global scene from the emergence of modern humans to the dawn of the new millennium. Part Two examines regional histories in detail. The atlas also features an encyclopedic index that contains approximately 20,000 entries, including full gazeteer listings and biographies of historical figures, together with concise descriptions of the major events that have shaped the world. The general editor, Jeremy Black, is associated with the department of history, U. of Exeter, UK. Oversize: 10.75x15
