Paperback 96 pages

In The Penguin Atlas of Modern History Colin McEvedy has compiled an absorbing source of reference to the major developments of modern history from 1483 to 1815. Nearly forty maps and a detailed commentary follow the voyages of Columbus, Magellan and Cook, the ebb of power from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic European struggle for control of a vast new money economy.

This is the third volume in a set of four which have as their theme the differentiation and evolution of European society.
