Description
Curious to know when history actually started? Looking for facts on the rise and fall of nations? Want to find out who is the "mother of medicine"? The Big Book of Dates is an engaging and useful study of the human past, featuring a chronology of key events. Authoritative, compelling, and complete, it includes five parts:
-- Fine Arts: everything about the key people and movements in dance, opera, literature, music, theater, sculpture, and painting
-- Politics and Civilization: facts on every key political movement and culture throughout history
-- Philosophy and Religion: philosophy over the ages, including Socrates, Descartes, Hobbes, Marx, Gandhi, and Martin Luther King, Jr.
-- Sports and Entertainment: information on all forms of popular entertainment over the millennia, from bear-baiting to television
-- Nature, Science, and Technology: the kaleidoscope and the telescope, the ice machine and ice cream, phrenology and penicillin

In addition, The Big Book of Dates features fascinating sidebars with factoids about home, fashion, and fun, as well as excerpts from primary documents that bring to life the events they describe.
