Synopsis: With more than 10,000 biographical entries, this is the most comprehensive women's history encyclopedia available. This ambitious work profiles women throughout time and throughout the world. More than 2,500 signed articles written by academics, up to 5,000 words in length, highlight a particular woman's personal background and significance in history. Shorter entries spotlight historically important women who are less frequently researched or for whom less information is available. This encyclopedia features women from all walks of life, including: rulers, royalty, lawyers, politicians, soldiers, heroines, pacifists, resistance fighters, financiers, entrepreneurs, philanthropists, investors, authors and more. Coverage includes many women for whom profiles are not included in traditional sources. Features include: a short introductory quotation that exemplifies the woman being profiled; a short summary of each woman's life and achievements; more than 3,000 photos and illustrations; genealogical charts establishing standard names used throughout; sidebar entries for women whose lives touched that of the biographee; occupational, geographical, historical era and master indexes; essay-specific lists of sources consulted and further reading lists; lists of related media (recordings, television, etc.) about each woman; information on collections of any works by the subjects; extensive cross-references, and much more. More than 600 books were analyzed to identify the women most likely to be researched in a historical context. Women in World History's 17th volume includes an occupational index, a geographical index, an historical era index and a master personal name index. Because variant names can be a confusing component of research, the first volume and the index include genealogical charts that note relationships and establish a standard name to be consistently used throughout the set.
