  • 100 MAPS THAT CHANGED THE WORLD
    100 MAPS THAT CHANGED THE WORLD
    A stunning compilation of the most important, dramatic, beautiful and inspirational maps. An ancient Chinese proverb suggests, "They are wise parents who give their children roots and wings - and a map." Maps That Changed the World features some of the world's most famous maps, stretching back to a time when cartography was in its infancy and the 'edge of the world' was a barrier to exploration. The book includes details of how Lewis and Clark helped map the American West, how the British mapped India and Australia. There are the beautifully engraved Dutch maps of the 16th century, the sinister Utopian maps of the Nazis, the maps that presaged brilliant military campaigns, charted the geology of a nation or divided a continent up between its European conquerors. Organised by theme, the book shows the evolution of map-making from all corners of the globe. The introduction is written by acclaimed cartographic historian Jeremy Black.

  • 1001 BATTLES THAT CHANGED THE COURSE OF HISTORY
    1001 BATTLES THAT CHANGED THE COURSE OF HISTORY
    Since the first recorded armed conflicts in Sumeria in 2500 BCE, battles have been fought for geographical and political gain. Early combats were small in scale, involving only a few thousand infantry and primitive chariots, but successive campaigns in the region gave the city-states of Babylon and Agade enormous power. 1001 Battles That Changed the Course of History traces 5,000 years of armed conflict around the globe, revealing the part each battle played in the course of a campaign or war and the wider political or social impact it had on the region or country as a whole...Illustrated throughout with ancient carvings, detail-filled tapestries, dramatic paintings and evocative photographs, 1001 Battles That Changed the Course of History is packed with striking imagery and illuminating text. Award-winning historian RG Grant has gathered an expert team of contributors to provide incisive and insightful descriptions of the nature and course of every battle included. From the Battle of Troy to the Siege of Antioch and from the Battle of Gettysburg to the bombing of Guernica, this book traces the changing face of warfare around the globe and throughout history, and highlights the fascinating and often surprising consequences of individual conflicts on the history of the world.

    1001 HISTORIC SITES YOU MUST SEE BEFORE YOU DIE
    From heritage sites that preserve wonders of the ancient world, such as the Great Wall of China, to memorials that commemorate significant moments in the twentieth century, and from the Sterkfontein Caves, near Johannesburg in South Africa - the 'cradle of the human race' - to Checkpoint Charlie, the variety of historic sites featured in 1001 Historic Sites You Must See Before You Die is immense...Many of the great engineering works of the past and present - viaducts, bridges, ships - are represented, together with the homes of the people who have changed the course of history, from Stalin's birthplace to Elvis's Graceland. There are reviews and images of the seats of power, from Versailles to the White House; the world's major battlefields, from Gettysburg to the Somme; and significant monuments and places of worship, such as the Wailing Wall, the Chatmohar Mosque in Pakistan, and St. Peter's Basilica in Rome...It is unlikely that one reader will get around to visiting all 1001 sites in person. However, after reading this book, they will know which are their personal must-see sites, which they absolutely must visit in their lifetime.

  • 1492
    1492
    The world would end in 1492 - so the prophets, soothsayers and stargazers said. They were right. Their world did end. Ours began. Felipe Fernandez-Armesto traces key elements of the modern world back to that single, fateful year: the way power and wealth are distributed around the globe; the way major religions and civilisations divide the world. Events that began in 1492 even transformed the whole ecological system of the planet. Our individualism and the very sense we share of inhabiting one world, as partakers in a common humanity, took shape and became visible. In search of the origins of modernity, 1492 takes readers on a journey around the globe of the time, in the company of real-life travellers, drawing the together the threads that began to bind the planet. The tour starts in Granada, where the last Islamic kingdom in Europe collapsed, then moves to Timbuktoo, where a new Muslim empire triumphed. With Portuguese explorers, we visit the court of the first Christian king in the southern hemisphere. We join Jews expelled from Spain as they cross the Mediterranean to North Africa, Italy and Istanbul. We see the frozen frontiers of the dynamic, bloody Russia of Ivan the Great, and hear mystical poets sing on the shores of the Indian Ocean. We observe the Aztecs and Incas lay the foundations of a New World in the Americas. Wars and witchcraft, plagues and persecutions, poetry and prophecy, science and magic, art and faith - all the glories and follies of the time are in this book...Everywhere, new departures marked the start of a new configuration for humankind, revealing how and why the modern world is different from the worlds of antiquity and the middle ages. History seems a patternless labyrinth - but a good guide can trace our paths through it back to the moment when some of the most striking features of today's world began.
