With its multicultural orientation and dazzling maps, photos, and artworks, the DK Atlas of World History is the first truly global chronicle of humankind's experience on Earth. Remote-sensed data and digital cartography provide the most accurate mapping ever used in a historical atlas. Every map is enhanced by photographs, artworks, diagrams, timelines, and expertly researched and clearly written annotations and text. Produced in consultation with a team of over 30 academic historians, geographers, and cartographers, the atlas uses a two-tier approach:Part One-the Eras of World History-presents a global overview of the last 60,000 years, while Part Two-Regional Histories-focuses on specific geocultural areas, including coverage of places and peoples often ignored by more traditional atlases. All these elements combine to create a historical atlas that is a joy to explore, easy to use, and unmatched in its breadth and depth of information.

The natural style and design of this atlas lets the reader flow from topic to topic without stopping to figure out the organization of the book - this effortless flow lets you absorb and comprehend the information readily and (most importantly) make connections. The best of it's kind I've seen in 15 years of using such resources professionally and at home.
