9781450807456: The Book of Amazing History

The Amazing Book of History is a 708-page collection of hundreds of articles, lists, quotes, and anecdotes that explore a lively range of human history, from the ancient world to the recent past to pop culture. The hardcover volume looks at history from an anything-goes perspective, with nearly 300 dynamic tales of people, places, and events. Its innovative approach and witty style should appeal to a wide range of readers.

Topics in The Amazing Book of History include science, politics, the arts, war, medicine, sports, crime, food, historical figures, and more. Learn about the real-life explorers who created King Kong; the teenager who invented television; and Nazi Germany s secret baby farms. Here are a few other topics covered in the book:
Biological warfare secrets of the ancient world
The racy true story of the Barbie doll
The development of American hot rod culture
A brief history of underwear
The food obsessions of ancient Rome

The Book of Amazing History is for history buffs, trivia fans, and everyone with an interest in the past. The book has a faux leather, gilded cover with a three-dimensional illustration.
