en Limba Engleză Carte Hardback – 04 Oct 2018

Much more than a history atlas, this book drops you right in the heart of the action, as 130 detailed maps tell the story of pivotal episodes in world history, from the first human migrations out of Africa to the race for space. After the foreword written by renowned broadcaster and historian Peter Snow, purpose-made regional and global maps present the history of the world as it happened, charting how events traced patterns on land and ocean - patterns of exploration, discovery, or conquest that created powerful empires, fragile colonies, or terrifying theatres of war. An interplay of text and graphics leads you around the page so that you can follow the story of civilizations through ancient, medieval, and modern times.
But not every page is full of maps. At key points in History of the World Map by Map, broad, sweeping introductions provide a chance to step back and look at entire periods, such as World War 2, or to explore overarching themes, such as the Industrial Revolution. Picture spreads, meanwhile, focus on epoch-defining moments or developments, such as fascism and communism, and the invention of printing.

Notă biografică

Peter Snow, MBE, is most familiar to British readers since the 1960s as the face of tv election analysis. A highly respected journalist, author, and broadcaster, he was ITN's Diplomatic and Defence Correspondent from 1966 to 1979, and presented Newsnight from 1980 to 1997. An indispensable part of election nights, he has also covered military matters on and off the world's battlefields for 40 years. In 2004, Peter and his son Dan presented the BAFTA-winning Battlefield Britain for BBC2 and worked on the follow-up series, Twentieth Century Battlefields. Together they wrote two books to accompany the series, and they more recently collaborated again on the book Treasures of British History - the Nation's History told through its 50 Most Important Documents (2015). Peter has won critical claim on his own as a history author, for books including To War with Wellington (2010) and When Britain Burned the White House (2013).
