Abstract:

The classic history reference, brought completely up to date, linking more than 30,000 events in an overview of 7,000 years of civilization. The Timetables of History is an indispensable resource that distills the essence of civilization, highlighting significant moments in history, politics, philosophy, religion, art, science and technology. 2 color throughout. Vast and absorbing, spanning millennia of human history, The Timetables of History, achieves a goal in the study of the past that is unmatched by any other reference volume -- it gives us a sweeping overview of the making of the contemporary world. This remarkable book maps out at a glance what was happening simultaneously, from the dawn of history to the present day. Never before has progress been presented with such clarity or with a view that fully captures the essence and the excitement of civilization.
