Краткое описание

The New York Times Guide to Essential Knowledge: A Desk Reference for the Curious Mind: Revised and Expanded Third Edition.

The New York Times has been gathering and providing reliable information on human affairs and the natural world for more than 160 years, and that enormous base of knowledge is crystallized in this superb one-volume encyclopedia. It spans inventions, endangered species, musical theater, the financial crisis, Wikileaks, the global food supply, Shakespeare, nuclear weapons, photography, and Olympic sports. The Guide to Essential Knowledge also offers perspective (the 16-page section Key Battles in World History includes Natalie Angier's focus piece "Is War Our Biological Destiny?") as well as features like a 128-page Biographical Dictionary (with more than 1,000 profiles, from Maya Angelou to Zoroaster) and Will Shortz's "How to Solve the New York Times Crossword Puzzle.""This widely expanded update ... defines nearly every facet of contemporary life—from arts, grammar, mythology and culture to science, economics, and geopolitical issues. Though bearing an authority and informational wealth that might rival the voluminous Oxford Dictionary of English, this surprisingly manageable volume is organized alphabetically by subject and contains thousands of highly accessible essays, tables, and lists, all composed by New York Times field experts. An essential background reference for almost every subject."—Library Journal
