Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Historical atlases offer an understanding of the past which is invaluable to historians, not only because they convey a previous age's sense of space and distance but also because they reveal what historians and educators of those periods thought important to include or omit. This book-the first comprehensive and wide-ranging account of the historical atlas-explores the role, development and nature of this important reference tool and discusses its impact on the presentation of the past.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [242]-259) and index.
