Description
 
Jacqueline de Bourgoing (au); David J. Baker (tr); Dorie B. Baker (tr). Our lives are punctuated by dates: Ramadan, Motherís Day, New Year, Halloween, tax day, birthday, payday. Some events are worldwide holidays, while others are celebrated by only a few. At what point in history did humankind begin to organize time? How did the patterns of the sun, moon, & stars influence the way we mark our hours & days? When & how did we establish the cycles of time that make a season, a decade, a cent., or a millennium? Many cultures have developed independent calendar systems, & religions have also played their part in the story. The modern western calendar is the fruit of a long & tumultuous history. This richly illustrated book traces the scientific, technical, & political history of calendars: the story of time itself.
