History of the World Map by Map Hardcover – 15 October 2018
Enhance your purchase
Witness our incredible human story unfold - from the very first people in Africa to the collapse of Communism - exquisitely charted map by map.
Come on a journey through global history, told in 130 maps that each offer a window on a key event. Step into the action and follow Ghengis Khan sweeping through China, Napoleon conquering Europe, or two world wars raging across the globe. See empires rise and fall - from the Egyptians and the Aztecs to the British empire and the Soviet Union.
History of the World Map by Map also explains how elements of civilisation, such as writing, printing, and tool-making, came into being and spread from one country to another. It tells of the rise of the world's great religions and of human endeavour such the voyages of early explorers. It charts stories of adversity such as the abolition of slavery, and shows how people have always migrated for a better life, from the very first humans moving across Africa, to millions of 19th-century Europeans crossing the Atlantic in search of the American dream.
Endorsed by renowned broadcaster and historian Peter Snow, this is an unmissable visual guide to ancient, medieval and modern history in all corners of the world.

Same production team, same Foreword by Peter Snow, same printing in Malaysia.
The Smithsonian version also includes a 78-page Timeline which is totally engrossing in its own right.
Hence the Read-Now pages are almost exactly the same, except for outside covers.
The Smithsonian with extra Timeline sells for £35.50 (on Amazon) whereas this 78 page shorter version sells for £17 (on Amazon today, and on 4th November I was able to buy D-K version for only £10.99).
So this D-K version can be excellent value, but you need to watch the price you pay!
The full colour, glossy pages are stunning. The text is arranged in such a way that information is captured in snippets not in paragraphs after paragraphs of essay.
I love everything about this book, which has been dubbed by my son as ‘the best thing you ever bought for me’.
Also a somewhat more simple and clear description of thing would be better.
For me there is just too much information.
