Mass Historia

365 Days of Historical Facts and (Mostly) Fictions

By Chris Regan
Illustrations by Kathryn Rathke

8 1/2 x 10 3/8, 256 pages, 4C, hardcover with PLC

The History Channel meets Comedy Central in this irreverent, entertaining, and abundantly clever look at a year's worth of "facts" by Chris Regan, a five-time Emmy award-winning comedy writer and one of the co-authors of Jon Stewart's bestselling America (The Book). Flipping through the historical calendar, Regan offers up unknown, unrepentant, and often-unbelievable facts for every day of the year, based on genuine, historical occurrences. Mass Historia rewrites history with Regan's unique brand of satirical commentary, and includes: o historical photos o hilarious photo captions o fun fact lists History may never recover--and certainly will never be the same. And if we're destined to repeat it, at least we'll have fun along the way.
