About the Author:

Mounir A. Farah, General Editor of this set, is the highly-esteemed and celebrated senior author of World History: The Human Experience, among many other publications.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 8 Up—This set provides profiles of influential world leaders. Each volume contains 15 to 20 sketches that include basic biographical information, an overview of the subject's achievements, and analysis of the "interplay" between the person and the "political, economic, and social circumstances" in which he or she lived. Those profiled create a diverse group: political and military leaders (Henry VIII, Adolf Hitler); religious leaders (Jesus, Buddha); scientists and mathematicians (Marie Curie, Euclid); and philosophers (Maimonides, John Locke). They also include influential women (Eleanor of Aquitaine, Golda Meir) and some lesser-known figures from the Americas, Asia, and Africa (Topiltzin Quetzalcoatl, Shi Huangdi, Mansa Musa). Entries range in length from five to eight pages and offer well-captioned color reproductions, photos, and maps; sidebars listing important dates and people; "Words from Their Time" primary-source excerpts; a "Culture Connection" linking some aspect of the person's culture to the modern world; and a short bibliography. Articles are cross-referenced and each volume has its own index, but there is no set index, a significant weakness. This attractive set provides well-illustrated, objective information in a global context, but almost all of the subjects featured are included in widely held references such as the Encyclopedia of World Biography (Gale, 1998) and the "Great Lives from History" series (Salem).
