The Times History of the World in Maps
Available in Stock
For millennia maps have not only reflected our growing knowledge of the world, but have driven the events that have shaped it. This volume reproduces more than 70 maps - from Babylonian tablets to Google - charting their history. Every one tells a tale, from the discovery of the Americas to the Berlin Wall, demonstrating how borders change, empires rise and fall, trade and exploration connect far-flung parts of the globe, and key historical events unfold.
