The Atlas of the Ethno-Political History of the Caucasus is a magnificent collection of fifty-six original maps with commentaries that detail the ethnic, religious, and linguistic makeup of the Caucasus--the region located between the Black and Caspian Seas that contains Europe's highest mountain--from the eighteenth century to the present. The highly detailed maps and text untangle the exceptionally complicated history of this area, poised between Europe and Asia, which has been marked by ethnic conflicts and changing political borders. The Atlas illuminates the conflicting historical visions of homelands and borders, and provides a comprehensive reference tool for scholars, geographers, and historians.
This textbook, "The History of Azerbaijan" was written in accordance with the existing academic-thematic programme in this area of study. The history of the country is described starting from ancient times to the beginning of the 21st century. The maps in this book were originally published in the work "The Historical Geography of Azerbaijan" (Baku, 1986). This textbook is intended for students, lecturers and non-specialists working in the educational system as well as for the general reader with an interest in Azerbaijan.
Updating and nearly doubling the number of entries in the 1996 The History Highway identifies some 2,500 sites for historians. Begins with general topics for beginners, such as getting on the Internet, hardware, software, netiquette, and copyright. Then cites sites by topic of interest, among them ancient, European, history of science, military, psychohistory, genealogy, state historical societies, resources for history teachers, maps and images, discussion groups, and electronic journals.
This text contains 102 pages of entirely new full-colour maps assembled by a team of experts. Particular attention has been paid to illustrating themes of cultural history, of the relationship between different civilisations, and of the growth of an overall world community. The non-Western world, especially Asia, receives full coverage and the contributors have taken care to concentrate on information of specific importance to the themes of each map - whether it be the routes of royal progresses in medieval Germany, or the spread of government-sponsored factories in 19th-century Japan - rather than on military activity or border changes. The maps are illuminated by a series of essay which draw together the ideas of various maps and open up new perspectives from historical geography. The result is a guide to world history that is essential reference and fascinating reading for everyone interested in history.
