About this product
- DescriptionThe calendar is an indispensable tool for civilized life, allowing people to order the past, present and future and to record events. Many cultures - including the ancient Greeks, Romans and Chinese, the Maya, Aztec and other religions - have developed independent calendar systems. The modern western calendar, accepted today as the global standard, is the fruit of a long and tumultuous history. This book traces the scientific, technical and political history of calendars.
- Author BiographyJacqueline de Bourgoing holds advanced degrees in geography and serves on the faculty of the Institute of Political Studies in Paris. She produced a series on the history of the calendar for French television.
