Consider the world maps on pages 418, 618 and 734. How do they each show the way the world was organized at that particular point in history? What changes in between?
If you consider the maps in terms of which countries are winning and losing in the scramble for imperial expansion, who do you see as the winner? Who has the most amount of territory at any given point in time?
Write a 1-2 paragraph explanation of how the maps describe the world at a given point and time AND how they change in between.
