Schott's Almanac 2008
Schott's Almanacredefines the traditional almanac to present a record of 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 announcement of Gordon Brown as Britain's new prime minister to Hurricane Dean's devastation of Jamaica, and from the release of the Iranian hostages to the publication of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. 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, combining the authority and accuracy of the Economist with the wit and vitality of Have I Got News for You.
