History of the World Map by Map Summary

History of the World Map by Map by DK

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 colonisation of North America, the scientific revolution, Napoleon's advances, and Britain's control of India. There's more in later centuries, such as the Age of Imperialism, the American Civil War, industrialised Europe and the transformation of Japan.

This history book reaching across millennia gives you a broad view of the pivotal events in our past. With 140 maps, complimented with pictures, info boxes and timelines, there's so much to enjoy and learn about. You will gain a strong understanding of some of the forces and movements across continents that have shaped our world.

About DK

Peter Snow, MBE, is most familiar to British readers since the 1960s as the face of tv election analysis. A highly respected journalist, author, and broadcaster, he was ITN's Diplomatic and Defence Correspondent from 1966 to 1979, and presented Newsnight from 1980 to 1997. An indispensable part of election nights, he has also covered military matters on and off the world's battlefields for 40 years. In 2004, Peter and his son Dan presented the BAFTA-winning Battlefield Britain for BBC2 and worked on the follow-up series, Twentieth Century Battlefields. Together they wrote two books to accompany the series, and they more recently collaborated again on the book Treasures of British History - the Nation's History told through its 50 Most Important Documents (2015). Peter has won critical claim on his own as a history author, for books including To War with Wellington (2010) and When Britain Burned the White House (2013).
