An illustrated guide to the organization of everything under the sun--from film crews to India's caste system--explains more than three hundred hierarchies in the arts, business, history, religion, science, sports, and other fields

Blackwell North Amer
The Order of Things is the first reference book to capture the human mind's perceptions of the order of its surroundings. Organization - the most basic component of civilization, nature, and the universe - is displayed brilliantly in this romp through the world of reference categories. Almost everything you can think of that represents an underlying order - whether natural or man-made - is included in this book's more than 400 lists, hierarchies, and illustrations.
Whether you want to know which are the world's longest rivers, highest mountains, or largest cities; or would like to find a list of the recycling codes on plastic containers, of the popular names of animal groups, the birthstones for each month of the year, or the dynasties of ancient Egypt and China, The Order of Things is the one reference book to consult.
