The first comprehensive chronology of world history ever published, S.H. Steinberg's Historical Tables, remained a standard reference in libraries through six decades and twelve editions. The Fitzroy Dearborn Calendar of World History is the thoroughly updated, modernized, and expanded successor to Steinberg's classic. Now edited by John Paxton, the Calendar is a concise chronology of human history highlighting some 25,000 events throughout the world in a single volume. The editor has expanded coverage in the arts and sciences and has corrected the original work's Eurocentric view of history to include seminal events in the histories of Latin America, Asia, and Africa. An important work for any reference collection.
"For a one-volume reference work, it is simplicity itself and it works." - Library Association Record
