Overview

Navigate the Star Wars universe as you never have before–with this fully illustrated, full-color guide that maps the entire galaxy.

You know the planets–from Alderaan and Corellia to Tatooine and Zonama Sekot–and the star systems, from the Deep Core to the Outer Rim. But now, for the first time, you can pinpoint their locations and chart the travels of your favorite characters through the vast reaches of space. Star Wars: The Essential Atlas is a galaxy-spanning trove of vital statistics and information ranging from the astronomical and geographical (“Systems, Sectors, Oversectors, and Regions”) to the historical and political (“The Sith Empire” and “The Great Hyperspace War”). Encompassing the entire Star Wars canon, including all the films, and the Clone Wars television series, plus the novels, comic books, video games, and more, this volume is packed with dozens of detailed maps and charts, as well as pertinent data and accompanying facts on

• the Empire: its length and breadth, political regions, populations, trade routes, major attractions, and trouble spots
• the Clone Wars: the trajectory of this decisive conflict across the universe, data on key battles and major Loyalist and Separatist worlds
• the adventures of Han Solo: the heroic rogue’s exploits throughout the galaxy–including his captaincy of the Millennium Falcon and his first, fateful meeting with Chewbacca–before his life-changing alliance with Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi
• the Sith Wars: the progression of the universal clash between the ancient Jedi Order, their dark side counterparts, and the Mandalorian warriors who fought against both orders
• and much, much more

From Hutt Space to the Unknown Regions, from the Knights of the Old Republic and Episode I to the Fate of the Jedi and Legacy era, Star Wars: The Essential Atlas is the ultimate gateway to space fantasy’s most brilliantly imagined and endlessly intriguing galaxy.

This book is a must have for anyone interested in the galaxy far, far away. It is full of maps of the galaxy that allow to get oriented in the settings of the the Star Wars galaxy. It is also full of an historical overview of the galaxy, the expansion of the Republic, and the major events of history. Tons of info on the major planets of the saga is also included. This is really one of the most interesting of the Star Wars &quot;non-fiction&quot; books.

As the headline says this is very helpful to anyone. Whether your just trying to follow the movies and novels, if you want more insight into the history and astrogrophy of the galaxy, or if your a young kid roleplaying, this is very helpful. Does have some minor flaws; such as not all the planets listed in the index are shown on the maps, and there were a some very significant planets that they did not include in the planet overviews (such as Tython, Ziost, Iridonia, or Arkania).

My wife and I bought this for our little Star Wars fan. He enjoys referencing the book, and even quotes some of the matter-of-fact explanations of the Star Wars Universe. Fortunately, the writers make sense out of the "how and why" of the Star Wars Universe so Mommy and Daddy understand. I hope our son becomes as dedicated to learning our universe...

My boyfriend loves this atlas. For role-players and Star Wars enthusiasts, this book goes from the well-known planets to outer rim planets rarely heard of. Great book to give as a gift!
