CHOICE Review

Arranged geographically, like Worldmark Encyclopedia of the Nations (8th ed., CH, Jun'95) and Worldmark Encyclopedia of Cultures and Daily Life, ed. by Timothy Gall (CH, Jun'98), this chronology covers 192 countries at the end of the 20th century. Alphabetically arranged by country, each volume includes a time line, prehistory through summer 1997, a glossary, and a bibliography and index, both comprehensive. Country entries begin with an introduction to geography and history and provide a good overview of social and cultural history. Boldface headings identify key dates, events, and people. Dates usually specify a particular year, but sometimes a broader or narrower period. Most events receive a paragraph or two of explanation, but length varies. Coverage is comprehensive, extending through 1999 for some countries. Black-and-white maps, photographs, a good typeface, and well-spaced page layout enhance appeal and usability. Entries conclude with a bibliography that varies in length. Although expensive, the chronology should get heavy use in libraries needing a comprehensive world chronology arranged by country. Both H.E.L. Mellersh's Chronology of World History (CH, Nov'99) and the Simon & Schuster chronologies (Mellersh's Chronology of the Ancient World, 1994; R.L. Storey's Chronology of the Medieval World, 1994; and Neville Williams's Chronology of the Expanding World, 1994, and Chronology of the Modern World, CH, Nov'95, both with a cutoff date of December 1992) lack the geographical arrangement, maps, photographs, and narrative that make Worldmark so unique. James Trager's The People's Chronology (rev. ed., 1994) has scattered photographs and coverage from prehistory through 1993, but is a one-volume desk reference. Recommended for large school, public, and academic libraries. P. Flaherty; Eastern Kentucky University
