5.0 out of 5 stars If you want a good overview about history...., 19 Dec 2003

This review is from: The Penguin Atlas of World History: From the French Revolution to the Present: From the French Revolution to the Present v. 2 (Penguin Reference Books) (Paperback)
This is about the best overview of history I have ever seen: it clearly describes world history and not the ususal european centred history - everything from pre-historia to common age. The fact that maps are being used as well as diagrams helps an awful lot to give a clear overview without getting confused with minor details. I am not an historian but these books made me understand the general concept of history through time. And you know what? We are all the same, strange he.

I liked the coverage of this atlas but find that the very small maps and consequential small print difficult to appreciate. If you are the least perturbed by having to squint through a book only in very good light, I wouldn't recommend this book.

So much information in one little and clear book. Here are the basis for more research. All very interesting and well presented.
