Dictionary of Historical Allusions

ISBN: 978-1-59333-799-5
Useful for anyone interested in the social world of the nineteenth century, this dictionary was conceived as a desk reference to assist in finding, in a single source, the events behind the modern world. Intentionally without providing the length and depth of analysis of a standard history, this book provides in a brief paragraph the essentials of various historical references. Treaties, social and religious movements, battles, laws, and straightforward historical events are all chronicled alphabetically for ease of use.
