Throughout history, powerful nations have attempted to extend their spheres of influence by invading the lands surrounding them. While some efforts have been fruitless, others have resulted in the emergence of true empires. From the ancient Akkad Empire of Iraq to the modern superpower, each of these empires has led the way in social, political, and economic developments. This work covers the rise and fall of history's most powerful civilizations. Features include detailed commentary, specially commissioned full-colour photographs, maps, and illustrations that locate each empire and place it in its historical context; and contemporary letters, documents, speeches and literature that bring to life each historical period. Topics include Alexander the Great, Han China, the Byzantine Empire, the Holy Roman Empire, and Napoleonic Europe.
