Description

The Code of Hammurabi. Martin Luther's Ninety-five Theses. The radical notions that launched the French Revolution. The beliefs that propelled the American Civil Rights movement. These are only a few of the thousands of concepts described in this remarkable chronicle of intellectual history. Presenting the ideas of philosophers, prophets, scholars, critics, educators, revolutionaries and reformers, the Fitzroy Dearborn Chronology of Ideas concentrates on the famous - as well as infamous - concepts that have changed the world. Here, too, are the historical turning points that resulted from the application of those ideas - the natural flow of the American Revolution from the concept of democratic liberalism, for example, or the Russian Revolution from Marxism.
