Omfång: 207p. ill.
The currents of history run deep and often unseen beneath the everyday ripple of events. But now and again the current rises to the surface, and the events of a single day shed an exceptional light on the meaning of the past. Some of the 50 days described in this book mark the end of an era; others the start of something new. All are remembered as powerful symbols of their time.
