“This superlative history of the world is the ideal companion for all who aspire to understand man’s past. Illustrated with over 300 dynamic maps it has been developed from The Times Atlas of World History, a world-wide bestseller with over half a million copies sold in nine languages.
This Concise Atlas of World History is designed for an even wider public and many of the maps and all the accompanying texts are new. It has been published in the belief that a study of world history – those great movements and conflicts which form man’s collective memory – is essential for an appreciation of the world today.”
