Reviews:
  • Vetibert
This is a coffee table book that has gotten a lot of use in the last 4 years. I use the atlas extensively in my historical research. I looked at many books in this category before deciding to purchase this one because this was the most comprehensive. It has exceptional maps that are large enough and detailed enough to answer questions and follow historical events.

Part One has 100 pages divided into eras with multiple maps in each. Part Two has 275 pages showing changes in regional history sub-divided into 1 or more centuries. The Glossary and Index has 64 pages so you can see how detail oriented this volume is.

On virtually every page you will find photos, a timeline, at least one map, and summary commentary. It is like an encyclopedia based on locations. You will not be disappointed if you buy this atlas.

A Great book for general history of the world.

The maps of east Asia, specifically the Han, Tang, Ming, and Qing empires, show a single color which seems to indicate that the Korean peninsula was usually part of China. In fact this was never true. What, did you hire a Chinese revisionist mapmaker and then not proofread for accuracy? A historical atlas needs to be accurate, because people look at it to see and learn. In fact you have ignored several kingdoms, including Goguryeo, Silla, Baekjae, Balhae, and several other smaller ones. These kingdoms existed for several hundred years. As a Korean descendent, I'm not only disappointed, but angry at this sort of negligence. My complaint is also directly corroborated by Rieu, readers, please see his review of this book on the web. If this part is so misleading, then I shudder to think what else is wrong in this atlas. Stay away from it; caveat emptor.
