Summary

Summary

Some 10,000 historical figures are covered in this 1 volume alphabetically organized directory. Each entry provides the basic information: name (& variants), dates & places of birth & death, nationality, area of endeavor (category), & significance. Prompted by the need of Salem's own editors for an authoritative database of dates & names, they have created this easy-to-use, fully cross-referenced directory.

Booklist Review

Like Salem's Directory of Books and Authors [RBB S 1 99], this volume is designed for reference librarians. "Based on repeated reference inquiries about correct spelling and dates," it provides very brief information on more than 8,000 people from all fields of endeavor, time periods, and parts of the world.
