9780060890728: Collins Atlas of 20th Century History

With over 200 full-colour maps and compelling text from Britain’s foremost 20th-century historian, Richard Overy, the Collins Atlas of 20th Century History is an in-depth yet accessible guide to the last century.

The last century witnessed the most profound changes in human history. The Collins Atlas of 20th Century History is the best guide to an incredibly eventful 100 years, a tour through ten decades of conflict, hope and innovation.

The content of the book is presented here in graphic form, with maps forming the basis for examining all the century’s major developments, from the height of the Imperial Age to the challenges of the post-Cold War era.

The coverage is extensive, and particular attention is paid not only to the military conflicts that shaped the century, but also to the themes and challenges which faced humanity: health, the environment, education, drugs, terrorism, science and technology, telecommunications, and energy resources.

With over 200 full-colour maps and compelling text from Britain’s foremost 20th Century historian, Richard Overy, the Collins Atlas of 20th Century History is both a visual feast and a work of substantial scholarship.
