Concise Atlas of World History

Philip's Atlas of World History: Concise Edition - Patrick K. O'Brien One of my favorite books, insofar as it quickly conveys in broad brushstrokes general information about much of recorded history. It has shortcomings, of course--but a historical atlas of all world history will lack much detail, and will suffer for what its editors elected to omit, as omit they must in a subject so broad.
