Book Series “World History in Tables”
No state has ever undertaken similar publications. It ranks second to none according to the volume of information, number of referred most reliable sources, simplicity and ease of use. Everything published up to now is significantly less deep and less comprehensive.
Besides rather concise tables covering almost the whole history of mankind, the first book comprises a section of geographical maps some of which have not been published for several centuries.
“The idea of correlating events and phenomena of Russian culture with facts of global history is, I think, highly successful. Tables induce contemplation and give rise to new generalizations and concepts. That’s why I surely support their publication.” Academician D. Likhachov about F. Lurie's manuscript “Russian History and Culture in Tables”.
