Part of a four-volume work presenting the events of history in their context from 10,000 BC to AD 1992, this fourth volume covers the modern world from 1763 to 1992. Alongside political dates are placed the key events in the arts, science, religion, plus birth and death dates. This enables each occurence, whether a battle, a piece of sculpture, or a scientific discovery, to be seen in context with contemporary events elsewhere.

Book Description Helicon Press, Oxford, second edition, 1994, 1994. Cloth, 4to, 26 cm, xvi, 1136 pp. From the blurb: "On its initial publication in 1966, the Chronology of the Modern World quickly established itself as the most useful, wide-ranging, and interesting chronology of modern world history available. Following a year-by-year sequence, the work presents two parallel sets of information: first, a detailed listing of events (covering political history, international relations, wars, conquests, annexations, and natural disasters); second, information on a broad range of themes - Science, Technology, Scholarship, Philosophy, Religion, Art, Music, literature, The Press, Drama, Entertainment, Sport, Economics, Law, Statistics, and Births and Deaths. The original structure enables the Chronology to serve three purposes. First, by using the comprehensive index the reader can find out when particular historical events occurred. (For example, when did Finland declare its independence from Russia?) Second, the reader can follow the course of momentous episodes in modern world history (such as the Second World War or the Cold War). Third, the reader can obtain numerous panoramas of contemporaneous developments. In 1894, for example, WE. Gladstone resigned as British Prime Minister; the notorious Dreyfus case began in France; Japan declared war on China; Nicholas II became Tsar of Russia; freedom of worship was granted in Austria; author Robert Louis Stevenson died; Debussy finished his famous 'impression' 'Prélude à l'Après-midi d'un faune'; and the New York Jockey Club was founded. For this new edition, the Chronology has been extended to the end of 1992." Title-page has a stamp "This book was slightly damaged during transit and it is now being sold at a special low price". The only damage apparent is that the book is slightly shaken at the rear joint, otherwise Very Good in slightly creased dustwrapper. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-15460
