Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Completely updated, featuring:

* Recent breakthroughs in science and technology

* New achievements in the visual arts and music

* Milestones in religion, philosophy, and learning

* The rise and fall of nations and the emergence of historic figures

* Landmarks in the drama of daily life

About the Author

Now in its third edition, The Timetables of History is the English-language version of Werner Stein's classic Kulturfahrplan, which has sold millions of copies since it was published in 1946. Translated by Bernard Grun, it has been completely revised and rewritten for the English-speaking world.
