Overview

This volume in the World Atlas of the Past series combines 34 newly rendered full-color maps with exquisite art and photographs and engrossing narrative to trace the history of civilization in the Modern Age, from 1815 to the present. This state-of-the-art book boasts extensive coverage of the countries of Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Europe, which makes it a perfect fit with the global studies and world history curriculum.
Each section features a full-page regional map showing such historical events as global migration, wars, and the shift of imperial boundaries, and a highlight map that illustrates a particular aspect of politics or culture. These clear and easy-to-understand maps show how cities have developed, flourished, and declined, how geographical centers have changed, and how countries and continents have interacted over time. The accompanying text captures the key historical facts of the period, while sidebars focus on art and artifacts to bring each period to life. A chronology within each section provides ready reference. The volume includes a glossary of terms, suggestions for further reading, and an index.
