This book is intended as a handy reference to historical developments, including many not found in conventional history books. Since its first appearance form more than 25 years ago, the Chronology has come into wide use in U.S., Canadian, British, and Japanese libraries, newsrooms, radio and television news organizations, schools, and offices. Having proved itself as an accurate, reliable, and concise source of information, it has now been completely revised and updated.
This book-only edition - part of the revolutionary Gale Virtual Reference Library - extends the scope of this popular printreference, from prehistory through 2004. With nearly 30 percent more entries than the print edition, the book goes beyond the wars, treatises and political events readily found in traditional history resources. And with its electronic search capabilities, users can more easily put history into context when looked alongside other topics. Each chronological chapter is further organized by era or year, and within each year by standard subject categories. Almost every year contains entries under the following 33 standard subject categories:
Political Events; Human Rights, Social Justice; Philanthropy; Exploration, Colonization; Commerce
Retail, Trade; Energy; Transportation; Technology; Science; Medicine; Religion; Education; Communications, Media; Literature; Art; Photography; Theater, Film; Music; Sports; Everyday Life; Tobacco; Crime; Architecture, Real Estate; Environment; Marine Resources; Agriculture; Food Availability; Nutrition; Consumer Protection; Food and Drink; Restaurants; Population
