A solid, well-planned cartographic introduction to world history that packs a huge amount of information into its 368 pages, in an unspectacular way. Over 50 academics collaborated to write it, and it aims to have a truly global perspective, abandoning the Eurocentrism of the past. The maps are plain and workmanlike, not elegant but very clear. In order to cover the world in a single volume, each two-page spread has to cover a lot of ground, especially in the earlier chapters. Includes an Index.
