Details of his books can be found on his website: www.martingilbert.comReview:
‘Gilbert’s maps, both the original and the newer contributions, are carefully drawn and packed with information ... The extensive underlying research obviously conducted by Gilbert shines through in many of the maps and gives the Atlas a reassuring feel of accuracy and authority ... all libraries of any size, including collections serving the general public, should own a recent edition. Inch-for-inch of page, it is hard to conceive of any other work, textual or graphical, conveying so much information on Jewish history in an accessible and digestible form. Excellent value.’ – Reference Reviews
'For sheer detail and breadth of scale [the maps] offer an essential reference for students and teachers.' – BBC History Magazine
