The International Book of Days
The International Book of Days is a unique record of world history. For each of the 366 days of the year, including February 29, several substantial essays explore significant events through their anniversaries or through other relevant dates. The emphasis is typically on the anniversary of particular events, although in some cases the birth dates or death dates of the individuals involved were used if necessity merited it. Religious events and secular holidays from virtually every country on Earth are also included.
