Description

Product Description

Oxford''s Atlas of World History is the result of years of intensive work by a specialist team of scholars, editors, and cartographers. It presents the story of humanity in its physical setting, from the emergence of the earliest hominoids to the present day. Truly international in scope, the
atlas incorporates the latest research into Asian, African, and Central and South American history, as well as the traditional core of North American and European events.

The Atlas includes sections on the Ancient World, Medieval World, Early Modern World, Age of Revolutions, and the Twentieth Century and Beyond. Each section opens with an introduction that highlights the main socioeconomic, cultural and religious themes of the period, followed by spreads of maps,
text, illustrations and captions that discuss specific regions and eras. Spreads depict everything from hunting in Africa in 10,000 BC to the kingdoms of Southeast Asia in the earliest years of the millennium, the decline of the Byzantine Empire, the growth of the Atlantic economies in the 18th
century, and standards of living since 1945.

The Atlas features some 450 vivid full-color maps illustrating the major themes and events of world history, 100 photographs, 60 diagrams and hundreds of thousands of words of explanatory text. Unique for such an atlas, the entire work is thoroughly cross-referenced, allowing the reader to move
backwards and forwards in time or across the world from region to region, following themes or lines of inquiry across pages.

The new edition brings the Atlas into the 21st Century and up to the present day. New and updated maps and illustrations cover a wide range of evolving subjects such as population changes, international trading, urbanization, political and economic developments, literacy rates, the concentration of
world languages, and many more important and always timely subjects. Coverage of Africa, South Asia, Eastern Europe, and every other part of the world is revisited and updated, making this the most up-to-date atlas of world history available, in addition to being the most complete.

A comprehensive index of more than 8,000 entries includes numerous alternative name forms used over the centuries. The Atlas of World History closes with a bibliography that provides a booklist for suggested further reading. Equally well-suited for a general audience and students of history or
international relations, the Atlas of World History continues Oxford''s presence as the premier publisher of world atlases.

The atlas is set up with themes and has a good balance of maps and text to explain events. It covers facets of world history I haven''t see together since I was in school. It will make a good reference and interesting to pick up to read a couple of pages (a theme) at a time. Maps are smaller than I''d like, but they''re ok. Text is a little small for older eyes.

Not as easy to read as the World History Atlas by Jeremy Black, 11/2004. I gave it as a gift who shared same interest as my husband.

This is it! This is the reference book that provides wonderful maps and excellent summaries of major cultures, nations, and development topics. East, West and everywhere in between, all from early hominids through the 20th century.

The atlas is extensive and the summaries are very well written and accessible to adults without any study of history. In fact, that is why I purchased this book. My wife wanted to learn about how civilizations developed from their beginning to today, and to see where these events took place by maps. This book exceed all expectations.

I chose to buy "Atlas of World History" because i often need quick information and a historical frame about any given geographical region in my studies. For that, Atlas of World History works well. Large maps, good index system - and not too much information. The only thing i don''t like is it''s layout. The colors used for graphical elements are a bit off (white+bright blue+grey), and the fonts are very small (my guess is size 9). The maps are not the nicest quality either, and looks more like something from Google Maps than from an actual atlas. Because of this the Atlas of World History looks like a cheap schoolbook, which is sad because it deserves something better.

I have ordered this book in December 2012. The book is fine, but I rate it to be only 3 stars because: 1. there are only 46 pages on ancient world from a total of 312 pages (included foreword, index, bibliography, and so on) - that means for the period 5 million yrs ago (or BCE) till 100-500 AD (or CE). I would have liked much more space given to this period, with many more detailed maps. I hoped for more about BCE period and 1-1000 CE period, especially since this is supposed to be World History, and not Medieval and Modern History. 2. there are big pictures of different items (such as sculptures, paintings, various artifacts) which are occupying a lot of the space on each page, so instead of bigger maps you have a kind of scarce map-picture and kind of too big various-artifacts-picture. I think is important to have this various artifacts included, but either on many more pages, or on smaller scales.
