Book Description Publication Date: September 1, 2009 | Series: Historical Atlas This is a fascinating exploration of the most influential collection of writings in Western history. By placing the events and people described in the Bible into their social and geographical context, it seeks to provide new insights into the scriptures and illuminate a truly significant period in the development of Western civilization. The authoritative, engrossing text is accompanied throughout with quotes from the Bible, showing the link between the historical events described and the scriptures. There are 100 beautifully detailed maps illustrating the movements of the people and the development of nations, and there are over 100 color photographs and illustrations of archaeological sites and artifacts.

My son loved the book great maps and details. I am buying another one for a gift and one for myself.

Very nice maps, but not enough detailed and the commenting text I found wanting.

Another knockout from John Haywood, who is clearly a talented and thoughtful cartographer. I'm currently using this atlas as a companion for an early world civilizations course, and much prefer it to the recommended book. In fact, my professor referred me to this series - I get the feeling he would have made it the course standard, except these are sadly out of print. Thank goodness for amazon, as I plan to to acquire the whole series of atlases in this edition!

Pluses include clear, understandable legends and nicely detailed maps. The organization of the whole atlas is superb, and reading through it is like an enjoyable and cogent history lecture unto itself. As with the other atlas in this series I currently own, this one is far from euro-centric and touches on the history of every region of which academia has detailed knowledge. This is a great boon for anyone attempting to understand the context of our ever more globalized, interconnected world!

Very poor quality maps. I purchased this with the expectation that in my studies of ancient history, this would allow me to have a
concise reference as to locations of regions, cities, towns, rivers ect. thereby allowing me to better follow the historical narratives
of the various books in my library. This it did not.

Any of the historical atlases by John Haywood is excellent. They combine readable text with great illustrative maps. The combination makes history easier to understand and remember. This atlas covers the time of 500 BC to 600 AD. Those of you familiar with Haywood's Atlas of World History should note that this atlas contains all of the material as the classical world section of that comprehensive, one-volume atlas plus about fifty percent more. The only problem is that all of Haywood's atlases seem to be out of print.

Atlas of World History ("AWH") by John Haywood comprises 6 parts titled Historical Atlas of... with a 4-page introduction & 28 double-spread maps each (152 maps/180 spreads/360 pages in total), acknowledgments & index. After the 1st publishing in 1997 by Sharpe, as a 3-volume set (ISBN 1563248549), AWH was reprinted not only in full in one 384-page volume by Weidenfeld as Cassell's Atlas (ISBN 030435757X), which can be seen inside at Amazon UK.

The 1st AWH was also abbreviated in 1 shorter volume with only 121 double-spread maps in color on 256 pages by Barnes & Noble (ISBN 0760706875) & MetroBooks (ISBN 1586630997), as well as published in full in separate 1-/2-part & 96-/192-page volumes (AS THIS ONE) including encyclopedic dictionaries on 16 spreads numbered 29 to 44 (32 pages) per part. The 4-volume World Atlas of the Past has also 256 pages (64 per volume), but only 52 double-spread maps (13 per volume); each accompanied by a spread of text with a useless big landscape photo.

O'Brien's (Oxford/Philips) Atlas (ISBN 0195215672 can be seen inside) would seem superior to AWH, if not for the disqualifying incompetence of rendering Poland reformed & not Catholic; so O'Brien cannot be trusted. Hammond Atlas is a reprint of superior Times Atlas.

ON THE SHARPE'S EDITION FROM SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL BY TESS MCKELLEN:

Grades 9 up, because of their format, historical atlases are often difficult to use, and this handsome resource is no exception. However, with a little self-orientation, readers can familiarize themselves with the set's organization, which is explained in the front of each volume. The effort will pay off, making it possible for users to trace a particular story (e.g., the Celts) through regions and periods of time. Each volume covers a huge chunk of history (4,000,000 years ago-A.D. 600; A.D. 600-1783; 1783-present) and is divided between world-map spreads covering different periods within the defined time frame and regional/topical-map spreads that treat areas and subjects (e.g., the growth of the Roman Empire). The text presents a brief survey, containing cross references to related topics. The bulk of each spread is occupied by a map that offers a wide variety of data (places, events, routes and expeditions, cultural and political groups, migrations, significant structures, territorial expansion, etc.). Timelines indicate major events within the period under consideration, a unique feature that adds considerably to the work's value. In addition, the regional/topical maps each have a list of numbered captions that provide brief information about points indicated on the map itself. This resource has only general information regarding the period of 1945 to 1997. Fine typographical distinctions on the maps indicate whether the name used is a state/empire, dependency/territory, tribe, cultural group, or geographical region. With its high-quality index (both volume specific and cumulative), easy-on-the-eye print, and an outstanding layout, this set is exemplary. Subtle coloring and logical spacing and placement have precluded the visual confusion that such publications often produce. AN EXCELLENT RESOURCE FOR SOPHISTICATED AND MOTIVATED HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS.

ON THE SHARPE'S EDITION FROM BOOKLIST:

The set is clearly laid out and could be as easily perused and understood by junior-high-school students as by adults. There are 56 maps in each volume. Within each volume, arrangement is chronological, and then by continent, geographical area, or country. Maps are numbered according to the volume within which they appear, followed by the number of the map within the volume.
Coverage of world areas varies. The Near East and the Mediterranean receive more coverage in volume 1, which deals with the origins of civilization. Volumes 2 and 3, covering 600 A.D. to the present, give roughly equivalent space to each continent. The whole creates a clear picture of change over time.
Projections are consistent and easy to compare, with the scale noted in both miles and kilometers per inch or centimeter. Most of the maps are double-page spreads. As a result, SOME DETAILS ARE LOST IN THE GUTTERS. A time line is located in the lower left corner of each spread, while detailed map keys vary in position on the page. AT TIMES, THE CROSSING LINES AND MULTIPLE DESIGNATIONS CAN BE A LITTLE CONFUSING, and they call for a close reading of both the keys and the maps. However, the labeling is clear. The maps, overall, have an attractive, approachable appearance.
Indexing is thorough. The cumulative index, located at the end of volume 3, is alphabetical by place name or topic. Map locations for each listing are given by volume number and page number. Individual volume indexes, also alphabetically listed, give page number only. The indexes are accurate and complete, the only detraction being the small font.
THIS ATLAS HAS FAR FEWER MAPS THAN HAMMOND'S ACCLAIMED TIMES ATLAS OF WORLD HISTORY. IT USES A UNIFORM MAP STYLE THROUGHOUT AND CONVEYS EACH THEME IN A SINGLE MAP, WHILE TIMES TENDS TO USE A GREATER VARIETY OF SMALLER MAPS. FOR EXAMPLE, WHERE SHARPE HAS ONE MAP REPRESENTING THE BYZANTINE EMPIRE FROM 610 TO 1204, TIMES HAS FIVE. THIS SIMPLER APPROACH MAY MAKE THE SHARPE ATLAS MORE ACCESSIBLE FOR YOUNGER READERS. THE COMPLETE ATLAS OF WORLD HISTORY IS SUITABLE FOR COLLECTIONS AIMED AT JUNIOR-HIGH-SCHOOL STUDENTS AND UP.
