Guinness Book of the 20th Century
Every year since 1900 is treated individually on a spread-by-spread basis in this book, highlighted by the personalities who made the headlines that year - the Beatles in 1962, Oasis in 1996, the Spice Girls in 1997. Details are given of the stories that defined the year: the music, television, household objects, and stars, with features on political events. There are snapshot listings of who was born, married, published, celebrated, jailed, murdered and died, and lists of all annual Oscars, Golden Globes, Grammies, and Pulitzer Prize winners. It aims to be a combination of serious history and quirkier items.
