Schott's Almanac 2006
Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, 2005 - Almanacs, English - 352 pages
Schott's Almanacredefines the traditional almanac to present a record the year just past and a guide to the year come. It is designed to be a practical and entertaining annual volume, that tells the real stories of the year, from the winner of I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!to the distribution of income across the British social spectrum, from the Asian Tsunami and its aftermath to Live8 and the crisis of the referenda on the European constitution, and from the death of the Pope to the trial of Michael Jackson.
Section headings are: Chronicle; World; Society & Health; Sci, Tech, Net; Celebrity & Media; Music & Cinema; Books & Arts; Travel & Leisure; Money; Parlimanent & Politics; The Establishment; Sport; Ephemerides.
In an age when information is plentiful but selection is rare, Schott's Almanac offers both the essential facts and the lucid analysis. It will combine the authority and accuracy of the Economist with the wit and vitality of Have I Got News for You.
