Encyclopædia Britannica Almanac 2006
Detailed facts and figures all in one place
Recall the major events of the past year—from the Indian Ocean tsunami to the British elections to the death of Pope John Paul II and the ascension of Benedict XVI.
The Encyclopædia Britannica Almanac 2006 is a complete, compact source of accurate information--yet it's anything but a conventional reference book. With extensive updating throughout, the Almanac boasts new sections and coverage of recent events, in addition to comprehensive listings in arts and entertainment, major awards, people, history, science, business, and geography. Under the "Britannica Greats" imprimatur, editors list the best love stories in cinema and culturally pivotal inventions. The "Personalities" section is a valuable guide to the people in the headlines. A lively design, lavish illustrations, and hundreds of fascinating facts throughout the book make it a joy to browse and explore.
