Originally published in 1982, this atlas of world history - like its parent volume, 'The Times' Atlas of World History - combines original maps with text, and offers a comprehensive view of the story of humanity. From the emergence of the first hominids five million years ago to the collapse of the Soviet Union, the full sweep of human history is covered. This atlas makes a companion for anyone who seeks to understand the past, and is useful as a reference for all who study and enjoy history.

Interesting design and format but factual errors make it a dreadful book to read. It mentions Central and Northern Europe as 'northern and eastern europe' while having a section on Russia as Russia. This doesn't make sense.
