History Day By Day
Sobre o livro
A vivid, day-by-day perspective on 2,500 years of human history through the medium of 366 quotations. From the founding of Rome to the 21st century's war on terror, this book presents an original perspective on over two millennia of human history through the medium of 366 quotations, each of which is tied to the anniversary of a celebrated historical event, capturing its essence with the immediacy of the eye-witness or the narrative flair of the chronicler. The book embraces a wide range of voices, moods and registers, from the powerful to the impoverished, the revolutionary to the reactionary, the propagandist to the idealist.
