Book Description

Oct 1997 Guinness
Every year since 1900 is treated individually on a spread-by-spread basis in this book, highlighted by the personalities who made the headlines that year - the Beatles in 1962, Oasis in 1996, the Spice Girls in 1997. Details are given of the stories that defined the year: the music, television, household objects, and stars, with features on political events. There are snapshot listings of who was born, married, published, celebrated, jailed, murdered and died, and lists of all annual Oscars, Golden Globes, Grammies, and Pulitzer Prize winners. It aims to be a combination of serious history and quirkier items.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best There Is Out There! 1 April 2000
By A Customer
I bought 5 books on the last millenium and this one wins hands down! Fantastic - I liked the fact it listed the music charts for each year.

Verified Purchase
Very clearly presented, a pleasure to look through. Very interesting book. Not as detailed as Chronicle of the 20th Century, but a full century of history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reliving the Century Year by Year! 26 Nov 2001
By Ahmed - Published on
A Fantastic Edition with stunning photographs, great stories, records of time-to-time, fascinating headlines, and a great collection for reliving history and defining events. This is a unique guide and a must-have collection. It is definitely a book that one would treasure and love for quite a long time. It has everything from everyday life to popular performances, from great games to successful stars' stories. This is also a great guide to the most dramatic century in history with the most fascinating events in history written on pages.
