Designed to accompany Patterns of World History by Peter von Sivers, Charles A. Desnoyers, and George B. Stow (Oxford, 2011), Mapping Patterns of World History takes advantage of the power of maps to reveal deep patterns, by tracing network connections-of trade, migration, and cultural exchange-as well as the geographic contexts of individual societies. The tension between societies, often defined politically, and broader networks-defined economically, socially, and culturally-is arguably one of the central dynamics of world history.
