A collection of different maps, focusing on the Middle East. Some of the maps is about the expansionism, others about the spread of Islam with its many fractions, others about US military bases and the Arab and Muslim countries.
For a better understanding, there must be knowledge of the past in the Middle East. That history shaped the world history, because many of those empires also crossed multiple boards throughout the world. There was even the biggest empire of the world involved in the Middle East and threatened even to overrun Europe. But what better to tell the history of the Middle East by pictures (of maps).
