This remarkable book presents enthralling accounts of 1001 life-changing events that have taken place around the world since the Big Bang. From the foundation of Rome on 21 April 753bce to the death of Colonel Gaddafi in October 2011, and from the Battle of Marathon on 21 September 490 bce to the rescue of Chilean miners after 69 days trapped underground, 1001 Days That Shaped Our World tells the history of the world through extraordinary moments, decisive encounters, memorable incidents, and natural disasters. Compiled by historian, Peter Furtado, and written by an international team of historians, journalists, and scientists, the book features a detailed and informative account of every event, together with an assessment of the longer term physical, cultural, social or economic impact. Evocative paintings and dramatic photographs complement the incisive text to make this book the one essential guide you'll need to understand just why the world is what it is today.
