The Atlas of Human History

The Atlas of Human History

by Jaca Books

Editorial Reviews

A six-volume reference set designed for junior and high school students surveying human history's evolution. The thin volumes feature lots of color: maps, photos, charts, and drawings. The text highlights the most common religions, and significant historical and cultural events of the region and period in a manner that's obviously intended to maintain a grip on a short attention span. The six volumes cover prehistory, the first evolutionary steps, the Paleolithic and Neolithic ages, the Near East, Africa, and the Mediterranean basin, Sumer, Babylonia, the Bronze and Iron Ages, Hindu civilizations, China, Japan, the Far East, and the Americas. The set includes a separate comprehensive index. Until December 31, 1996, the price is $150. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
