The International Who's Who: 1997-98 Gale Group
This source of biographical information on the foremost men and women in the world today contains 20,000 detailed biographies, each of which includes full name, nationality, date and place of birth, occupation/profession career details (past and present), family details, education, honours and awards, publications, leisure interests, current home and business address, telephone and fax number. The entries come from every country, and are included in the book for prominence in all fields of achievement - from the worlds of film, television, theatre, art, music and literature, science and technology, politics, law and many more. Introductory sections list reigning royal families and an obituary lists those who have died since the publication of the last edition. This reference reflects the latest developments in world affairs, acknowledges merit and achievement on a global scale, and is well-organized and up-to-date. This resource should be of particular benefit to public, academic and commercial libraries, businesses, universities, newspapers, international organizations, schools, colleges, government departments, embassies and professional bodies throughout the world. Existing biographies are thoroughly revised, thus guaranteeing that the latest events, achievements and changes are recorded. Over 1000 new entries appear for the first time to ensure that those who have recently achieved international recognition may be included. To ensure accuracy, wherever possible, information is provided by the entrants themselves.
