There are 39 thematic maps, some of Europe (and then always in the same format, so it's easy to see changes) some of the World. The period covered is 1483 to 1815; the book is quite Europe-centered, but shows the expansion and voyages of discovery by European powers as well. There is some information on, say, the Manchu or Mogul empires, but not much. The maps as well as the text are highly practical, giving you detail but not drowning you at it; I think the author has struck a particularly good balance between overview and focus. Every time I go through, I learn - and it is also a particularly good (and not too large) companion to whatever history book you happen to be reading.
Highly recommended, as are all the others in this series.
