700 chronologically arranged articles examine events in Europe from 15,000 BC to 1997. The categories covered include business and labour, communications, cultural and intellectual history, law, environment, education, diplomacy and international relations, exploration and discovery, government and institutions, religion, science and technology, social reform treaties and alliances, and wars and civil unrest.

Each illustrated entry identifies the event and key figures involved, describes the event and its background in some detail, and analyses the ramifications both short and long term. There follows a fully annotated Bibliography and Cross Reference section that directs readers to other articles in the set that may be of interest. The set also may be navigated via one of its five indexes: Keyword, Category, Persons, General, and Chronological.

About the Author:

After teaching at the University of Science and Technology Kumasi, Ghana, he was appointed Director of the newly established Technology Consultancy Centre and in 1987, he was appointed the first Director of the GRATIS Project.

From Booklist:

This set provides an updating of several previously published Magill titles from their Great Events from History series: Ancient and Medieval Series (1972), Modern European Series (1973), and pertinent entries from Worldwide Twentieth Century Series (1980). According to the publisher's note, Chronology of European History includes 163 articles from the first title, 237 from the second, and 13 from the last, with 348 of those "substantially updated," and 65 replaced. In addition to those 413 articles, 201 new ones were written specifically for this edition, not only to account for the more than 20 years of new history since the previous works, but also to account for the ethnic populations and events from Eastern Europe and Asia omitted from the first editions. Among the new entries are those highlighting the Chernobyl disaster, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Gulf War, the Ulster Peace Accord, and the opening of the Channel Tunnel.

The set opens with a listing of the contributors to the original editions plus the 175 contributors for the current one. Articles are arranged in chronological order, and as was typical with the previous sets, open with a brief synopsis of the event in question and a listing of key figures along with date and locale. The "type of event" element in the top matter in the previous sets has been replaced with a list of all the categories for which the event has relevance--"cultural and intellectual history," "immigration," etc. Following this ready-reference information is a summary of the event that is typically two pages in length. The author of each entry is given, often with the words "updated by" followed by another name, indicating the entry was revised. Entries conclude with a listing of approximately five additional readings, with helpful annotations. Bibliographies have been updated, with many bearing publication dates from the 1990s. Several black-and-white illustrations have been added, along with maps. The set concludes with a keyword index, category index, time line, geographical index, personages index, and subject index.

The larger trim size (10xb9 inches) and illustrations make this set more appealing than its predecessors based on appearance alone. Although certainly not a "must buy" for libraries already owning the earlier editions, this is a worthy consideration for the updated articles and bibliographies. Public, academic, and high-school libraries not owning any of the previous series should seriously consider investing in this set as it features readable overviews of key events without bogging down a general reader with too much detail.
