Summary
100 Documents That Changed the World brings together the most important written agreements, declarations and statements in history. The documents included here have changed the course of history by rewriting laws, granting freedoms and laying out constitutions. But as well as official charters and presidential proclamations, there are also the hand-written documents that have gone on to shape the way we think, the scrawled notes that mark breakthroughs in the worlds of science and technology, and the annotated manuscripts that have become literary landmarks. Documents include: I Ching (2800 BC); Code of Hammurabi (1754 BC); Magna Carta (1215); Shakespeare's First Folio (1623); Declaration of independence (1776); Constitution of the United States (1787); Louisiana Purchase (1803); Darwin's Evolutionary Tree (1837); Emancipation Proclamation (1863); Treaty of Versailles (1919); German Surrender (1945); Martin Luther King Jr.'s I Have A Dream speech (1963); First Website (1991); Edward Snowden Files (2013)
