This new edition of a publishing classic first introduced in 1978 is completely updated and revised, with an even more in depth look at the evolution of human history. With precise maps, clear text, and excellent images, The Times History of the World is truly the standard in historical atlases.

The New Edition marks the most radical and comprehensive revision of the book since its original publication. Every spread has been redesigned and rewritten, every map and chart extensively reviewed and updated. There is expanded treatment of China, Japan and southeast Asia from the earliest civilizations to today’s rapidly evolving regions. The coverage of the United States has been strengthened to allow more material on the post-War period while that on the 20th century has been reorganized to reflect new historical perspectives and the dramatic events of this turbulent century. The result is a work unequalled in its authority, quality and imagination, a masterly overview of the endlessly absorbing story of humanity. Page by page, continent by continent, era by era, the full sweep of human history is revealed in enthralling detail.

Over 520 computer-generated colour maps

Contributions from over 100 leading historians from around the world

Over 150 colour photographs

100,000-word glossary detailing every major figure, every major movement and every major development in humna history

16-page chronology of world history

Times History of the World is an enduring classic of world publishing. First published in 1978, this remarkable book has changed our way of viewing history. Its intelligent, accessible and visually sumptuous treatment by over 100 of the world’s leading historians brings the drama of history to the page in a way never previously attempted and never matched since. Its coverage is geniunely global, its conception never less than daring, its mapping consistently stunning, its texts clear, accessible and superbly well informed. Page by page, continent by continent, era by era, the full sweep of human history is revelaed in enthralling detail.

This new edition sees the most far-reaching and dramatic changes yet. Every spread has been redesigned and rewritten, every map and chart extensively reviewed and updated. There is expanded treatment of China, Japan and southeast Asia from the earliest civilizations to today’s rapidly evolving regions. The coverage of the United States has been strengthened to allow more material on the post-War period while that on the 20th century has been reorganized to reflect new historical perspectives and the dramatic events of this revolutionary century. The result is a work unequalled in its authority, quality and imagination, a masterly overview of the endlessly absorbing story of humanity.
