The Penguin Atlas of World History

The Penguin Atlas of World History: Volume 1, From Prehistory to the Eve of the French Revolution - Hermann Kinder, Werner Hilgemann, Ernest A. Menze, Harald Bukor, Ruth Bukor

This is really an excellent Atlas of World History.  It's packed with information and has clear and informative maps and diagrams.  The only reason that I do not give it give it five stars instead of five is my copy is old (from the 80s) and I don't know if it has been updated to keep pace with new developments in historical understanding and because it is the size of a Penguin paperback and this kind of book should be much bigger.

However the approach is exactly the right one for an Atlas of World History and it is very professional and informative.
