Review quote

"A valuable work produced to a high standard: large format, clear maps, though some beckon for a larger format or perhaps a double-page to themselves. ... The German editors and their publisher are to be warmly congratulated ... as is Brill for making an English version available." Gocha R. Tsetskhladze (University of Melbourne). Ancient West and East 10 (2011) "Concu comme un supplement aux volumes 1-15 de l'encyclopedie New Pauli, ce superbe atlas [...] couvre une periode s'echelonnant du troisieme millenaire avant notre ere au XVe siecle, decoupee en sept tranches; il ne se limite pas aux relations de pouvoir et de commerce, mais s'interesse aussi aux cultures et a leurs relations et met davantage l'accent sur le Proche-Orient ancien que d'autres atlas du meme type." R. Gounelle in Revue d'Histoire et de Philosophie Religieuses 2012, Tome 92 n 4
