With its multicultural orientation and dazzling maps, photos, and artworks, the DK Atlas of World History is the first truly global chronicle of humankind's experience on Earth. Remote-sensed data and digital cartography provide the most accurate mapping ever used in a historical atlas. Every map is enhanced by photographs, artworks, diagrams, timelines, and expertly researched and clearly written annotations and text. Produced in consultation with a team of over 30 academic historians, geographers, and cartographers, the atlas uses a two-tier approach: Part One-the Eras of World History-presents a global overview of the last 60,000 years, while Part Two-Regional Histories-focuses on specific geocultural areas, including coverage of places and peoples often ignored by more traditional atlases. All these elements combine to create a historical atlas that is a joy to explore, easy to use, and unmatched in its breadth and depth of information.
