Arrangement of material in this reference is in three sections: the history of calendars--the basics, the history, and calendar reform; calendars and holidays for religious groups (including info on some 20 major religions); and appendices (resources, chronology, bibliography) and indices (by holiday and calendar, as well as a master index). The new edition (previous: 1998) incorporates 100 new entries descibing holidays not previously covered, for a total of some 500; some new illustrations (b&w); and expansion of information on Christianity into three chapters on Roman Catholic and Protestant, Orthodox, and non-Trinitarian and non-traditional.
