Every event, however minor, changes the world in some way. Lenin said: 'Everything is connected to everything else.' The assassination of Julius Caesar was caused by apprehension about Caesar's ambition combined with the resentment and jealousy of lesser men: the murder subsequently led to the reign of Augustus and a succession of Roman emperors. Some major events seem powerful and momentous at the time, though we can see many years later that their effects were not as far-reaching as may once have been imagined. This book includes both positive and negative events. The result is a dynamic book crammed full of action, teamed with meticulous analysis and reflection. It includes events in politics, battles, inventions, discoveries, major catastrophic disasters, artistic and literary achievements and the deaths of famous leaders.
