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.

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.

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.

"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.
