I have been looking for this map for 25 years. A room mate in college had one. It does not describe the parameters (width= population or sphere or influence) but overall it is visually very interesting.

THis chart lists empires and cultures in their periods for the past 4,oo years--from Middle Kingdom in Egypt to Bill Clinton. Its verticle scale indicates the year, and the horizontal appears to be a measure of the importance of the culture/empire listed. THe Horizontal axis is not labelled, so it is not clear whether it si supposed to meanure military might, cultural importance, or precisely What?
Both the relative importance and the continuity of empires are oversimplified in ways that could lead to animated discussions.For example the Papal States appear to spring into being in 850 AD,(100 years after the Donation of Pippin) as a division of the Frankish empire, Despite the fact that they had existed in some form (under teh Byzantine empire) for several hundred years, and the Donation of Pippin is seen as guaranteeing their continued existance independent of Constantinople.
THe Chart also overlooks things, Specifically the History of the Aztec Empire, which controlled an area larger than France, and whose capital was as large as Constantinople.
In short, this Chart is useful for comparison, but not as an authoritative source

This was bought as a gift - but I did see it before bestowing it upon the receiver. It's pretty amazing! I cannot imagine the time and energy this took to create. Very glad to have found it here as it has been difficult to get a hold of through the foundation that owns the rights to it.

After a misunderstanding everything was fixed and the delivery was fine.
I fulfill my expectation with this poster

My father had this four foot long chart of world history and I remember how neat it was to see a graphic depiction of the ebb and flow of civilization. It was also great to quickly answer questions like, "Which came first, the pyramids at Giza or the Great Wall in China?"
So I was so excited to find an updated edition. Information has been added for the last fifty years - logarithmically so you get much more detail on recent events. I have mixed feelings about this as it distorts the overall "tides of history" sense and gives so much importance to recent events. "Election of Bill Clinton" on the same chart as "Tamerlane the Great" or "Charlemagne crowned Emperor"?
One other thought: the chart depicts civilization as "zero sum." For one civilization to gain space, another must lose. This is not my view of the expansion of human civilization. Nevertheless, no one should be without this handy chart.
A lot of reviews are asking what the width represents. The subtitle includes 'Relative Power of Contemporary States, Nations and Empires' so I guess he's trying to measure power. This timeline is Euro-centric so it helps with European history but not so much for some other cultures. This update is better than the older map ending in 1960 which had a lot of racist language. I'm looking forward to a map that shows civilizations by population or land mass or achievements in a non-biased way to see the true history of all of mankind, not just one culture's story.
