DK has produced another attractive, well-illustrated volume that will draw in even the hesitant history student. Foldout maps and narrative historical summaries are interspersed among the timelines that make up the volume. Though care has been taken to chronicle world history, with coverage of Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Americas and Australasia, the western world dominates. The copious color photos are accompanied by full captions. There is a glossary and concordance with chronologies and short histories of modern countries, but no index. Annotation c.

DK Publishing
An illustrated record covering all the major events and achievements in human history. Designed for history aficionados, trivia buffs, or anyone with a curious mind, Timelines of World History takes an innovative approach to the traditional, text-driven style of a date-by-date chronology. Tracing the progress of humanity from the dawn of history to the present day, the book follows major historical events, cultural milestones, the expansions of empires, and the inventions and achievements of civilizations. Important events are cross-referenced with specific dates, important historical figures are profiled, and introductory essays profile what was happening and why. With more than 500 photographs and illustrations and over 25 maps, this is the most authoritative visual chronological record of the last 20,000 years.
