Description

For many decades, and up to the present day, newspapers have written the first, dramatic drafts of our history. The collapse of empires, devasting wars, scientific breakthroughs and celebrity tantrums - all are captured by their headlines. And through the news stories, we can share in the drama, excitement and often dread of the times described. "The Newspaper Headlines Quiz Book" draws on those real headlines to provide a series of challenging quizzes' about the events that inspired them. Organized by themes, this quiz book is designed to test the reader's knowledge of events as wide-ranging as the Bhopal chemical disaster, the liberation of Paris in 1944, the world's first test-tube baby - and the marriage of David Beckham.show more
