THE TIMETABLES OF HISTORY
A Horizontal Linkage of People and Events
This fascinating, meticulously researched reference shows at a glance what was happening in seven areas—history and politics; literature and theater; religion, philosophy, and learning; visual arts; music; science and technology; and daily life—for each year (or ancient period) of history. Beginning with 4241 BC, full-page timetables depict a simultaneous unfolding of events—from the pharaohs of Egypt, the Epic of Gilgamesh, and the building of Notre Dame, to world wars, existentialism, Cole Porter, and the space shuttle. An illuminating, integrated look at the progress of civilization.
