Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item

With a foreword by Simon Schama, one of the world's foremost historians, and with 9000 chronological quotations arranged in 90 thematic chapters, this huge treasury is bursting with historical gems. The verbal banquet comes courtesy of such diverse figures as Herodotus, Charlemagne, Dante, Shakespeare, Thomas More, Marie Antoinette, Napoleon, Harriet Tubman, Rasputin, Lenin, Nehru, Al Capone, Churchill, Charles Lindbergh, Mao, Gloria Steinem, Susan Sontag, and hundreds more. These aren't quick one-liners, but richly detailed and generous excerpts from speeches, documents, literature, and other sources. Every continent and every major civilization receives representation and enlightening commentary, with topics ranging from the toppling of nations to the changes in science. All the quotations have annotations, with details about sources.
