THE NYSTROM ATLAS OF WORLD HISTORYThis brightly colored atlas uses infographics to clarify history


Rich in information and clear in presentation, this atlas's ten chronological units each cover a major era. After a "How Does This Atlas Work" introduction, the units each begin with a timeline and introductory text, and then the atlas's captioned, full-color maps and images are labeled "A-B-C-D" to guide readers logically from idea to idea. Map features include locator maps, explanatory captions, and carefully thought-out legends. Also, a worldwide timetable lays out simultaneous events in various regions. Students gather, organize, and synthesize evidence from text and visual resources to place milestone events within major historical movements, visualizing history as they learn content and build skills. Chronological and geographic organization develops an awareness of cause and effect. Recurring themes build a sense of historical continuity. The units:
  • Early Settlements and Civilizations
  • Ancient Egypt, China, India, and Mexico
  • Ancient Greece and Rome
  • Empires and Cultures of Asia
  • African Empires
  • Europe in the Middle Ages
  • The Age of Global Contact
  • From Renaissance to Enlightenment
  • Revolutions and Imperialism
  • Twentieth Century and Beyond
