Told more as stories than history lessons, the biographies in American National Biography, Supplement 2 recount the tales of all the different people who shaped America--leaders, composers, entertainers, entrepreneurs, writers, scientists, and outlaws. Each one written by an expert in the field and masterfully woven together to present the most accurate and up-to-date information, the entries bring forth a powerful narrative of America's past and some of the most important figures that went into its formation.
As the second in a series, iSupplement 2r includes a fascinating miscellany of 450 lives, ranging from 19th-century eccentric Joshua Abraham Norton who died in 1880, to President Reagan and Rodney Dangerfield, who died in 2004. Supplement 2 includes hundreds of figures of note from the past not included in the original edition of the ANB or Supplement 1.
New biographies not in the original set as well as articles first published in the ANB Online are included in the Supplement. The result is hour after absorbing hour spent exploring the literary worlds of Ken Kesey and Eudora Welty, the music of Tito Puente and Perry Como, numerous statesmen and politicians and many, many others.
With over 500 new listings, bibliographies after each entry, and a cumulative revised index of occupations and realms of renown, Supplement 2 continues the ANB tradition of bringing the people who have meant so much to this country to the forefront.

About the Author:

Mark C. Carnes is at Barnard College.

From Booklist:

To be included in the 24-volume set of ANB (1999), a person had to have died before 1996; the first supplement adds 400 biographies, primarily of people who died between 1996 and early 2001. Among those making their first appearance in ANB are George Burns, Eldridge Cleaver, Greer Garson, Barbara Jordan, Stanley Kubrick, and Walter Payton. Some individuals (Jean-Michel Basquiat, Diamond Jim Brady, Eliot Ness) missing from the original volumes have also been added. The "Index by Occupations and Realms of Renown" has been slightly reformatted and encompasses entries from both the supplement and its parent set. RBB
