Overview

Entertaining, authoritative, overflowing with gorgeous graphics and cutting-edge maps, this innovative series brings history to life through word and image and tells each continent s story from the perspective of its people The Macmillan Continental History Atlases form a major series of five distinguished illustrated history books for the popular and student audiences. Each book stands on its own to present a clear, visually exciting, and comprehensive history of a continent through colorful maps, lively text, and illustrations prepared by leading cartographers and specialists in its history. As a group, the five volumes convey a unique and innovative understanding of world history. The series provides the first truly focused continental perspective on history. The books have been created to give popular history readers and students alike accurate and unbiased information written from the point of view of each continent rather than from an exclusively Western European or colonial perspective. Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, and South America are each described in 80,000 words of text, 50 color maps, and 70 illustrations and photographs. Each spread within a volume covers in detail a single topic in the historical development of that continent. Together, the spreads make up a complete historical background of the major events that shaped the continent s past and present. Readers interested in a specific continent will find in each book an authoritative, absorbing, beautifully illustrated overview of that continent s history. For readers interested in world history, the five volumes make up an invaluable resource for a full understanding of how the world s jigsaw fits together. South America s history is a rich tapestry of complex ancient civilizations, colonial clashes, and modern growth, economic challenges, and cultural vibrancy. Dr. Edwin Early has taught history at Yale University, Stanford University, and the University of London. He is assisted in this book by Dr. Elizabeth Baquedano, of the London School of Economics and the British Museum; and history professors Dr. Caroline Williams, Dr. Anthony McFarlane, Rebecca Earle, and Dr. Joseph Smith.
