Bosnia, Croatia, Macedonia, Slovakia, Moldavia, Latvia, the Ukraine - new states are emerging across Europe, changing the map of the continent more dramatically than at any time since the World War I. This atlas puts Europe's complete history into an accessible series of maps, each with a clear commentary. It explains not only how the Europe of today has been shaped but makes clear the forces that moulded the Europe of the past. The atlas unfolds the key moments in European political history step-by-step, from the emergence of the first Greek city-states 3000 years ago to the new states formed in the wake of the break-up of the Soviet Union. A series of 46 full-page colour maps chart the crucial stages in Europe's evolution to create a dynamic picture of a continent in flux, revealing the ebb and flow of Europe's political development in unprecedented clarity. In addition, a series of almost 200 subsidiary maps highlight important events and processes to provide historical background.
