About the Author:

Now in its third edition, The Timetables of History is the English-language version of Werner Stein's classic Kulturfahrplan, which has sold millions of copies since it was published in 1946. Translated by Bernard Grun, it has been completely revised and rewritten for the English-speaking world.

Review:

"A unique, encyclopedic book -- rewarding, informative, entertaining."
-- The Wall Street Journal

"A fascinating and useful book for a great number of people."
-- Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.

"The Timetables of ™History can give us a feel for the fluidity and many-sidedness of past experience...[and] can help us see what we thought we already knew in a lively new perspective."
-- Daniel J. Boorstein, from his Foreword
