About the Author:

Series introduction author Chuck D redefined rap music and hip-hop culture as leader and cofounder of legendary rap group Public Enemy. His music addressed weighty issues about race, rage, and inequality with a jolting combination of intelligence and eloquence rarely heard before. A musician, writer, radio host, television personality, college lecturer, and activist, Chuck D is also the creator of Rapstation.com, a multiformat online resource for the global hip-hop community.

From Booklist:

This entry in the Modern Peacemakers series offers a concise, informative overview of the life of Mother Teresa, born Agnes Bojaxhiu, from her Eastern European childhood to her heeding of God's call as a teenager to her founding of the Missionaries of Charity, which would work with the "poorest of the poor" in Calcutta. Although her many good works receive full credit here, this biography also includes frank discussion of the controversies stemming from the nun's receipt of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979. Insights about the debate are provided by her acceptance speech, excerpted here, containing attacks on abortion and artificial contraception; Slavicek also acknowledges critics' claims that Mother Teresa's efforts were concentrated more on converting India's poor to Catholicism than on genuinely improving the quality of their lives. Detailed sidebars explain the history of the Nobel Peace Prize and offer insight into India's culture and history. Appendixes include a chronology, chapter notes for quotations, a bibliography, and titles for further reading. Sullivan, Ed

Mother Teresa is one of the most admired Nobel laureates of all time. Born in Eastern Europe of Albanian parents, she became a Catholic missionary nun in India when she was still a teenager. After teaching in a convent school in Calcutta for nearly two decades, in 1946 she claimed that she heard God calling her to live and work among the poorest of the poor in that city s slums. With the assistance of the religious order she founded, the Missionaries of Charity, over the next half-century Mother Teresa devoted herself to society s forgotten and unwanted, not only in India but in countries all over the globe. In recognition of her selfless efforts on behalf of the world s suffering, Mother Teresa received numerous honors during her lifetime, including the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize, which she was awarded in 1979. Mother Teresa is a stirring biography of a woman who gave voice to those most often ignored and neglected by society at large, and whose name has forever become synonymous with tireless charity.
