THAT WAS THE MILLENNIUM THAT WAS: TABLE OF CONTENTS

Click on the picture to order this book.Backstory: In November of 1999, I decided to commemorate the Millennium (one year early, yes, I know) by writing a series of essays highlighting the "best" of the last thousand years in a number of rather obscure categories, such as "Best Hideously Inbred Royal Family" and "Best Cheese." Here are the results. Incidentally, several of these essays were later reprinted, in edited form, in the book "Uncle John's Bathroom Reader Plunges into History." Those essays are marked with an asterisk. Enjoy!
