Editorial Reviews

Zom Zoms
First published to considerable acclaim in 1978 revised editions followed in 1984 and 1989, this atlas contains 600 visually exciting maps, 300,000 words of text, and 128 double-page spreads on major themes in world history. This fourth edition is the most radically revised, according to the publisher. Thirty maps have been replaced, and another 29 have been substantially changed. All the drawings that appeared in the last edition have been replaced by photographs Parker, Lovett Professor of Military and Naval History at Yale, is the new editor, and there are more than 30 new contributors. Notable is the large number of new contributors for South and Southeast Asia. British spellings have been replaced with American ones, and gender-neutral words have been substituted for gender-specific ones Changes in both maps and text are numerous and incorporate recent historiography and archaeology. For example, the map of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica now includes recently discovered Mayan sites at Lamanai and Tipu. There is a new map on the Portuguese exploration of Africa. Perhaps the most notable new spread is one entitled "Europe from 1973," which describes the dramatic developments in Eastern Europe in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Maps illustrate the European Community and the fall of Communism. The last spread in the atlas, formerly "The World in the 1980s," is now "The World in the 1990s," with new maps illustrating such things as international trade in illicit drugs and ozone depletion A noticeable omission is a large-scale political map describing the breakup of the former Soviet Union. Also, a map illustrating the Persian Gulf War would have been useful. Nevertheless, virtually every aspect of this thoroughly revised work has been improved, from maps with more distinct colors to the introduction of photographs Retaining its reputation as the most useful historical atlas, the Hammond "Times Atlas of World History" is an essential purchase for most libraries. At $95 it is a bargain, only $10 more than the third edition.

**** Previous editions of this acclaimed reference are cited in BCL3, Sheehy, and ARBA 1991. The fourth edition represents the most comprehensive and radical revision of the atlas since its original publication. Every major world event since the publication of the third edition in 1989 has been covered, with particular attention paid to the collapse of the Soviet Union and the emergence of new states across Eastern Europe. Thirty of the 600 maps have been replaced, while four entirely new facing-page map spreads include the Empire and Papacy in Europe 962-1250, Europe 1945-1973, Southeast Asia since 1945, and Europe since 1973. Additionally, all of the hand-drawn illustrations that appeared in the third edition have been replaced by photographs, and the original formal English has been modernized to make the volume more accessible to a general audience. 10.75x14.5" Annotation c.
