With authoritative and enlightening essays and detailed maps, charts, and time lines, National Geographic Almanac of World History encapsulates in one volume all of the important people and events that have changed the world.

Rich in cartography, information, and illustrations, National Geographic Almanac of World History is an indispensable tool for understanding both past and present.
