World Cultural Leaders Review

“Recommended for high school and public libraries because of its broad scope and convenience…”

“ABC-CLIO published the first edition of this title in 2000. Now Grey House has brought it up-to-date with more than 138 new entries and 75 new photographs, for a total of 550 biographies and 225 images. Each entry includes a brief headnote with dates of birth and, when applicable, death; a narrative of around a page; and a brief bibliography. Following the entries are a directory of ‘Places to Visit’ for selected leaders, a ‘List of Leaders by Occupation’ a glossary, an index, a selection of primary documents, and a foldout time line.”

“…fill[s] a need for handy, concise information on a wide array of international cultural figures that may be difficult to find. Thus, it may be a worthwhile purchase for those libraries servicing constituencies in need of this kind of information, such as writers and students.”

“… but the presentation, straightforward and accessible writing style, and 225 images make this source easy, appealing, and likely to be used. A real reference tool for public or community college libraries.”
