Synopsis: The World Atlas of the Past combines over 100 newly rendered full-color maps with exquisite art and photographs and engrossing narrative to trace the history of humankind from its tentative beginnings to the present. This state-of-the-art set boasts extensive coverage of the major civilizations 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 civilizations 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 civilization to life. A chronology within each section provides ready reference. Each volume includes a glossary of terms, suggestions for further reading, and an index.

The 4 volumes are:

Volume 1. THE ANCIENT WORLD: Earliest Times to 1 BC
Volume 2. THE MEDIEVAL WORLD: AD 1 to 1492
Volume 3. THE AGE OF DISCOVERY: 1492-1815
Volume 4. MODERN TIMES: 1815 to the Present

Review:
"Will be helpful to students who need historical overviews comparing major civilizations during specific time periods.... Colorful maps and crisp photographs of artifacts are useful and attractive. Timelines appear throughout the books. Each book has a glossary and a bibliography."--Booklist


"This handsomely designed atlas seamlessly blends text and colorful visuals while chronicling the history of civilization from prehistoric times to the present. The straightforward, well-researched narrative and instructive sidebars cover the major civilizations in Europe, Africa, the Americas, and Asia.... The eye-catching format boasts high-quality photos, but the three types of vibrantly and meticulously rendered full-color maps are the highlight of the set.... Collectively, they paint a vivid picture of the development of society over time."--School Library Journal


"Text describes the highlights of each civilization or historical period. The maps are easy to use, with keys explaining their presentation.... The full-color illustrations add to the visual appeal of the set. Younger students will find these volumes are a good starting point for research."--Reference Books Bulletin/Booklist


"The text is concise, readable, and supplemented with photographs and artwork.... A nice feature of this set is that by following the world maps throughout the volumes, it is possible to get a global view of history and the many events that occurred simultaneously. As Social Studies curricula embrace history from a more global perspective, it is important that libraries also expand their collections. This set covers a tremendous amount of information yet is affordable, attractive, well-organized, and written on a level that can be understood by middle school students."--The Book Report


"Excellent, clear overview of history...supplemented by well-researched timetables, sidebars, color maps, and glossaries."--Calliope


"Five million years of human history, from early hominids to Osama bin Laden, are condensed miraculously here into four brief volumes.... The sophisticated narrative text focuses on political and economic history, and in separate chapters singles out civilizations and political leaders.... Each of these chapters includes maps, timetables, fascinating photos and illustrations, and sidebars on topics such as the Koran, Cleopatra, and the Holocaust."--VOYA
