Beautiful hand-illustrated maps bring the story of human civilization up to date, examining the world from 1800 to the present day. Circling the globe, this atlas features amazing tales of trade, war, innovation, and conquest. Each map focuses on a major region, exploring the conflicts, changes, and
social movements that took place during a specific period of time. The subjects are arranged chronologically as the reader is guided through the end of the Napoleonic era, the Industrial Revolution, the colonization of Africa, World War I, the Great Depression in the United States, World War II, the Cold War, and the modern conflicts and realignments of today. The Kingfisher Atlas of the Modern World is the perfect pictorial representation of the influence of recent history on the modern world.

Praise for The Kingfisher Atlas of the Modern World

Children's Literature
The events covered would be good for promoting classroom discussions, to be used as a starting point in collecting research material, and definitely to help students with homework. It would be perfect for a home library as well as both school and public libraries.
