This review is from: The Penguin Historical Atlas of the British Empire (Penguin Reference) (Paperback)
This book is a fantastic, a concise historical reference of the whole span of the British Empire from 1100 up to today. The maps are of course the main thing in a historical atlas and these don't disappoint. They are very detailed and clear and there are lots of them. The book breaks down into 2-3 page sections e.g. "Conflict in Canada", "Peopling the Empire", with a map or two and substantial supporting text. Freshingly for books on the empire it sticks to the facts and doesn't overly indulge political or moral anaylsis that can often overshadow the events in books on this subject.

At 144 pages long it's fairly short, but as an overview I'd find it hard to beat.
