Description:

How the migration of people through the ages has shaped the course of history. The Atlas of Human Migration explains how humans have constantly overcome environmental and physical barriers and adapted to new social, political and environmental realities. From an estimated original 10,000 to 20,000 individuals, the world population has expanded to more than six billion. This book describes how it has spread over the world. The compelling stories of the world's peoples and their migrations through time are enhanced by informative annotated maps and informative timelines. Photographs, paintings and artifacts bring to life the history of human migration. In easy-to-understand language, a team of academic experts examines mass migrations -the motivations behind them, and their impact on the world. The book includes: An introduction to the main causes of human migrations The economic and social effects of migrations, traditional routes, and expected future migrations The prehistoric migrations of early humans Indo-European expansion, the Exodus, Polynesian and Greek colonization, and the Romans Medieval civilizations on the move -- Barbarians, Vikings, Mongols, Arabs and the Bantu Expansion through colonization, and the impact of convict ships and the slave trade Industrialization and the emergence of modern empires Famine, war, persecution and economic collapse in the turbulent 1800s The emergence of the state of Israel, the Eastern Bloc collapse, the India and Pakistan partition, the decolonization of Vietnam and Algeria, and Africa's civil wars.
