Accompanied by hundreds of illustrations and maps, the chosen events give insight into how and why our world has grown and changed. Did you know that the bow and arrow were developed nearly 5,000 years before pottery was made? (Events #16 and #19.) Or that Hamlet (#319) appeared at about the same time as Japan's Kabuki theater (#320) and the first newspapers (#322)? There's much more: Buddha's birth, the understanding of sight, Mercator's mapmaking, Tsar Alexander's freeing of serfs, the Battle of Gettysburg, the debut of toilet paper, D-Day, the first e-mail. A reader can open this book anywhere and find fascinating tidbits of history embellished with quick-read biographies, first-person accounts, and landmark paintings and photos. 1000 Events is sure to be a perennial backlist book, with its well-researched information appealing to readers of all ages. In the winning tradition of bestsellers Visual History of the World and Concise History of the World, this new volume presents facts in the easy-access format that people love.… (mere)

1000 Events that Shaped the World by National Geographic is divided into seven chapters viz., Ancient World (Prehistory–400 CE), Middle Ages (400–1500), Age of Discovery (1500–1700), Revolutionary Era (1700–1850), Age of Imperialism (1850–1913), World War Years (1914–1945), and Modern Age (1946–Present). Included in this book are further readings about its authors and illustration credits.
The text covers the history of the whole world and its continents. Readers are introduced to mankind’s primitive beginnings hundreds of thousands of years ago to the development of writing around 3300 BCE to the Modern Age. This book presents the big picture with interesting selections and details. Accounts are highlighted in sidebars, and there are also excerpts from contemporary experts on the significant moments of history.
The authors provided information on Marco Polo’s account of his visit to China, a survivor’s commentary on the Black Death, Columbus’s log; biographies of figures like Attila the Hun, Charlemagne, Genghis Khan, Ivan the Terrible, and Machiavelli. Readers will learn about the invention of the first map, book publishing, and the development of newspapers, gun powder, and the birth of the musical instrument, paper money, portable clock, side rules, toilet paper and many more interesting devices.

A fascinating sweep of global developments, this fact-filled book delivers what National Geographic has introduced into households for more than a century: The world and all that is in it. A thousand concise nuggets of text, each focused on one event and numbered chronologically, walk readers through time, from the first evidence of life 3.8 billion years ago to a just-discovered planet beyond our solar system that could harbor life as we know it.
