Selected for "The Best of the Best" Program at the 2012 ALA Annual Conference "[A] valuable picture of human development and will be useful to academic and public libraries."--Library Journal (Jim Langan, Univ. of Pittsburgh at Johnstown) "The graphical format of this history of mankind allows one to view happenings in one part of the world and then see other events at the same time in different areas of the world. Unique and refreshing. Illustrations and maps peppered throughout make accessing the information enticing and easy."--Globe and Mail "[F]inely researched and artfully produced... Haywood seamlessly combines history and geography to show not only population expansion but also cross-cultural contact and the growth of economic and social complexity. Libraries, schools, and everyone interested in the past will want this book for their shelves."--Penny Hastings, ForeWord Reviews "An excellent point of reference."--BBC History Magazine "This is a creative atlas, supported by Haygood's deep insight over a six-million-year cast of time that brings into focus the world's cultures and religious faiths, inventions and discoveries. Of especial interest are the colour-coded maps, which are particularly useful in enhancing the study of wars and empires."--Colin Gardiner, Oxford Times "This reference puts historical events in context rather than seeing them only in isolation."--Adrienne Antink, American Reference Books Annual "Haywood offers 35 full-color maps on the history of humankind, ranging from 6 million years ago to 2010 CE. Each map presents the world at a specific year in history, showing trade and migration routes, boundaries between nations, and peoples."--Choice "[A] blast... [H]ere's the history of the world in just over 200 pages, full-color, filled with fascinating stories told in some text, but mainly, through descriptive maps and pictures. It's a thoroughly modern way to tell our story, and, as you might imagine, it has become a favorite... [T]here's really nothing quite like having the whole of it in front of you on a hot Sunday afternoon in the cool shade, preferably with an equally cool drink from some far-off land close at hand."--Howard Blumenthal, Digital Insider
