KIRKUS REVIEW

A must reference item, the largest and most up-to-the-minute biographical dictionary representing preeminent figures, past and present, in all fields. There are 40,000 concise biographies, with name pronunciations. The text is thoroughly cross-referenced for pseudonyms, and the result is an impressive and authoritative addition for public libraries and home reference shelves. The tremendous advantage of this mass of biographical information within the scope of a single volume, the convenient arrangement and physical format, the legible type, the extensive tables of rulers, officials, Popes, all these factors add immeasureably to its practical value.
