When did Hannibal cross the Alps? Where was Genghis Kahn's empire? What caused the War of Jenkins' Ear? Who was Rosa Parks? How did the Arab Spring unfold?

Delve into this book and discover history's most decisive moments, as and when they happened, and where they all took place. Taking a chronological approach, History Year by Year invites you to explore the world's most momentous discoveries, ingenious inventions, and important events in the context of their time, wherever they occurred. Along the way you'll meet charismatic leaders, brutal dictators, influential thinkers, and innovative scientists from every corner of the globe.

In a detailed, dynamic timeline that expands and contracts as events dictate, History Year by Year describes the most significant happenings since 3000 BCE (and earlier), in the order they occurred, right up to the present day. Follow in the steps of your human ancestors as they colonize the planet, develop tools, harness fire, and paint cave walls. Learn how their descendants established great civilizations, founded huge empires, domesticated animals, built pyramids, produced great art, authored epic poems, and ultimately even travelled into space. There are wars and rebellions, voyages of adventure and discovery, extraordinary developments in technology, and incredible sporting feats.

Accessible to everyone, History Year by Year's combination of bite-sized information, eye-catching images, crystal-clear maps, and memorable stats will delight history lovers, and make an ideal gift for trivia buffs wanting facts at their fingertips. If you've ever wondered exactly what happened when - and where it all took place - then this is most certainly the book for you.
