Descrizione del libro

17 novembre 2004 American Heritage Dictionaries
The Riverside Dictionary of Biography includes more than 10,000 people from around the globe and from all periods of history. All continents, fields of endeavour, and historical eras are richly represented: the likes of Plato, Sappho and Michelangelo rub shoulders with Nelson Mandela; Frida Kahlo; Mao Zedong's wife, Jiang Qing and the actor-governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. The person's full name, birth and death dates, nationality and occupation are given, orienting the reader at a glance to the essential biographical data. Details of the person's life, education and achievements follow, along with information on the historical milieu in which he or she was active. Hundreds of short quotations provide morsels of wisdom, wit and often a bit of humour while imparting the spirit of notables such as Stephen Hawking, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Thousands of cross-references thread related lives together - the entry for the great blues singer Ma Rainey, for example, has a reference to her protege Bessie Smith and from Bessie Smith there are further references to the bandleaders Fletcher Henderson and Louis Armstrong. This wealth of information is arranged in an attractive, readable format with more than a hundred black-and-white illustrations. This is an indispensable resource for schools, libraries and individuals who need an up-to-date and authoritative biographical reference.
