Summary "Encyclopedia of World History explores the globe through illustrations and expertly written text. A distinguished group of academic historians has contributed and authenticated more than 6,500 A-to-Z entries that present a panorama of people, dates and events over the past 17,000 years. Special attention is given to the regions of Central and South America, Africa and Oceania - areas often omitted from history encyclopedias." "The encyclopedia recounts the stories and struggles of human society through a range of themes, including demography, agriculture, warfare, religion, government and politics, science, art, and the environment. Elaborately executed maps, along with illustrative photographs, tables and sidebars, provide a superb visual reference for high school and college students, researchers and general readers." "Among the book's many highlights are: special interest topics, such as the American Civil War, communism, and the Crusades - explained in detail and accompanied by specially commissioned historical maps; a ready reference section offering essential tables, charts and lists; time lines detailing significant people, dates and events in history from 15,000 B.C. to the present day; special box features explaining, through text, maps, diagrams and artworks, key historical peoples, empires or events; and more than 30,000 cross-references linking associated articles."--BOOK JACKET.
