A Political Chronology of the World includes extensive coverage of important recent events—particularly in countries with a recent history of political upheaval—complemented by invaluable detail on the early history of each nation. Each chronology begins at least as early as the emergence of an entity resembling the modern nation, and in many cases considerably earlier.

In addition to coverage of purely political events, this title also includes details of the principal economic, cultural and social landmarks in the history of each nation. Examples include the adoption of new languages, alphabets, calendars or religions. This volume should be the first point of reference for concise information on the history of each nation in the world.

Organized with a chapter for each country in the world, contents include:

• the major events that have shaped each country and, where relevant, associated dependencies and territories
• coverage of major events and developments from the early history of each nation to recent events, charting each country's economic, political and social progress
• detailed information on the elections, wars, disputes, diplomatic activities and changes to national borders by invasion, annexation and treaty that have had a major influence on history.
