NO OF PAGES: SUB CAT I: Reference SUB CAT II: SUB CAT III: DESCRIPTION: The purpose of this atlas is to show, as far as possible through maps of each event, the changes and historical processes in the lands of the Bible. In the first part of the atlas, the Jewish people were located mainly in the small area of the Holy Land; by the time of the Bar Kokhba Revolt, however, a large part of the people were scattered among the nations. The focal point of the atlas is the Holy Land, and one of our aims was to place it within its proper relation to the surrounding lands most of which played an important part in its history. There are therefore, many maps showing the Holy Land as a part of the Ancient East or the Greco-Roman world as a whole.NOTES: Donated by Rose DeRenzo. SUBTITLE: Revised Edition

Behold the beauty, majesty, and accuracy of revolutionary new world atlases published by Macmillan and produced from the $20 million Bertelsmann/RV Verlag world digital cartographic database. Peerless in design, quality, and practicality, these new atlases are published in print and CD-ROM formats and feature unique, distinctive benefits:
-- Special coloration shows what the Earth really looks like from space
-- Uniform scale across all continents provides true one-to-one comparisons
-- Transportation routes and POIs are highlighted so map can be used for travel as well as home and office reference
-- Up-to-date research and clean, modern type ensure readers are getting the most current and clear information

And these are just the opening titles in the Macmillan Atlas Geographic Reference category. Look for innovative new titles in Historic Reference such as The Atlas of the Civil War and Popular Reference such as The Atlas of War & Peace: Bosnia Herzegovina.
