Humans are a recent event in the planet's history, but we've wasted little time in making our mark. The range of our achievements has created a rich and elaborate heritage that we have the unique ability to capture and record-meaning we can look back and learn from the road traveled. Timelines of History begins with the emergence of our earliest African ancestors and takes the reader through the history of cultures and nations around the world to arrive at the present day-the beginning of a new millennium. A dynamic, layered timeline zooms in and out of time, speeding up or slowing down to keep pace with the size and scope of events.

Our critically acclaimed smash hit Cartographies of Time is now available in paperback. In this first comprehensive history of graphic representations of time, authors Daniel Rosenberg and Anthony Grafton have crafted a lively history featuring fanciful characters and unexpected twists and turns. From medieval manuscripts to websites, Cartographies of Time features a wide variety of timelines that in their own unique ways, curving, crossing, branching, defy conventional thinking about the form. A fifty-four-foot-long timeline from 1753 is mounted on a scroll and encased in a protective box. Another timeline uses the different parts of the human body to show the genealogies of Jesus Christ and the rulers of Saxony. Ladders created by missionaries in eighteenth-century Oregon illustrate Bible stories in a vertical format to convert Native Americans. Also included is the April 1912 Marconi North Atlantic Communication chart, which tracked ships, including the Titanic, at points in time rather than by their geographic location, alongside little-known works by famous figures, including a historical chronology by the mapmaker Gerardus Mercator and a chronological board game patented by Mark Twain. Presented in a lavishly illustrated edition, Cartographies of Time is a revelation to anyone interested in the role visual forms have played in our evolving conception of history

In September 1783, the United States signed a peace treaty with Great Britain. This event officially ended the Revolutionary War. More importantly, it proclaimed the United States an independent republic. That republic faced many challenges in its early years. One big problem was its weak central government. It didn't have the power to deal with the country's money troubles or growing tensions among the states. The republic needed more authority to make decisions on behalf of all the states. But could such a government treat its citizens fairly? Representatives from each state met at the Constitutional Convention in 1787 to answer that question. What happened next changed US history. Explore the history of the early republic. Track the important events and turning points in the development of the United States as a nation.

"Webster's bibliographic and event-based timelines are comprehensive in scope, covering virtually all topics, geographic locations and people. They do so from a linguistic point of view, and in the case of this book, the focus is on 'physiotherapy,' including when used in literature (e.g. all books that might have 'physiotherapy' in their title). As such, this book represents the largest compilation of timeline events associated with 'physiotherapy'." -- Pref.

In the spring of 1607, an English ship landed at modern-day Virginia. The ship's passengers quickly built shelters and a fort. Their settlement, Jamestown, was the first permanent English colony in North America. This event marked the beginning of an important period in US history. Over the next 150 years, thousands of Europeans—men, women, and children—journeyed to North America. They came seeking wealth, religious freedom, or a fresh start in life. The thirteen colonies they created became the foundation for a new nation. Explore the history of each of the thirteen colonies. Track the important events and turning points in the creation of the United States.
