Suitable for public libraries as well as highschool and colleges, this reference provides thoughtful biographies of people worldwide chosen for various accomplishments, including church reform, chemistry, music, art patronage, medicine, social reform, and writing, as well as more high profile pursuits, such as being a king or queen. This series is a revision of Dictionary of world biography (of 1998-9, also by this publisher), with longer entries, wider geographic scope, and many more entries on women. Among those included are Bayezid II, Sophie Brahe, Miguel de Cervantes, Cuauhtémoc, Giorgione, Ivan the Terrible, and Kenau Hasselaer. Each entry concludes with an annotated bibliography and cross references. Appendices list rulers and dynasties for countries worldwide and provide geographic, name, and subject indexes. The contributors teach at colleges and universities in the US; some are independent scholars. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
