Product Description:

Here, at last, is the history of civilization in its totality, neatly categorized and set into chronological order.

From the Back Cover:

"You can't measure time in days the way you can money in dollars because every day is different."
­­Jorge Luis Borges

Don't let the name fool you. The Big Book of Dates is much more than a list of facts and figures or a simple timeline. Here, at last, is the history of civilization in its totality, neatly categorized and set into chronological order. From monumental landmarks in art, politics, philosophy, technology, and science to the more whimsical, lesser-known details about popular culture, fashion, and habits of our ancestors, this ambitious book makes the past come alive.

Much more than a timeline, this impressive reference text chronicles the history of humankind from the earliest-known civilizations to the present.

Organized into five convenient, reader-friENDly sections, The Big Book of Dates covers:


-Fine Arts­­including all the major players, trENDs, and movements in literature, music, theatre, sculpture, painting, dance, and opera.
-Politics and Civilization­­chronicling the important dates and key movements in government and culture.
-Philosophy and Religion­­ illuminating the changing views about the meaning of life and mortality throughout the ages.
-Sports and Entertainment­­ providing the scoop on the popular pastimes and entertainment over the millennia.
-Nature, Science and Technology­­tracking the developments, discoveries, and evolution of the physical world.

Bursting with monumental as well as lighthearted dates, facts, and anecdotes, The Big Book of Dates puts the history of humankind into perspective. With its accessible, easy-to-read format, the book will invite reading and re-reading. This is a must-have reference for every home, office, and school.
