Description
Information
Organised in the same innovative manner as Colin McEvedy's other Penguin historical atlases, but presented in a new, larger, and more accessible format, The Penguin Historical Atlas of the Pacific features forty-nine double-page spreads, with text facing the maps, that provide overviews of crucial moments in the history of the Pacific and the lands around it, from the formation of the ocean some 28 million years ago, to the end of the 20th century. The spreads show the movements of peoples along the Pacific Rim, the occupation of oceanic islands, the development of nations, and the rise and fall of empires within and around the huge Pacific basin. The Penguin Historical Atlas of the Pacific is an essential acquisition for schools, libraries, and students of Asian and American history.
