Historical Atlas of the Twentieth Century
Today's interesting find is the Historical Atlas of the Twentieth Century. While the atlas has not been updated in three years the maps available are fascinating. From decolonization to urban growth in the second quarter of the twentieth century to people per telephone it is all here. Also available are interesting charts like the fifteen bloodiest wars. Finally, there is an interesting point/counterpoint on whether or not democracies wage war against each other.
