Overview

This thoroughly revised and updated edition of The Northeastern Dictionary of Women's Biography profiles the lives and achievements of more than 2,100 outstanding women. International in scope and stretching from ancient times to the present day, the women represented here have played important roles in history and society. Their accomplishments are as diverse as their backgrounds. They include artists, teachers, politicians, athletes, scientists, pioneers, businesswomen, and activists, as well as those who were simply willing to challenge the status quo.

Among those making their first appearance in the Dictionary are: Madeline Albright, Aung San Suu Kyi, Roseanne Barr, Tina Brown, Jane Campion, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Phoolan Devi, Susan Faludi, Catherine Mackinnon, Sally Mugabe, Lata Mangeshkar, Wangari Maathai, Camille Paglia, Anne Rice, Stella Rimington, Mary Robinson, Anita Roddick, Claire Short, Albertina Sisulu, Emma Thompson, Vivienne Westwood, and Naomi Wolf. The Northeastern Dictionary of Women's Biography features a user-friendly subject index and a comprehensive bibliography of additional reference sources.

A celebration of the lives of remarkable women, this unique book is an indispensable reference for students and general readers alike.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A revision of The Continuum Dictionary of Women's Biography (LJ 5/15/89), this biographical dictionary is international in scope, spans from ancient times to the present, and contains about 2100 entries. More than 60 new entries have been added since the 1989 edition, and more than 30 entries have been dropped. Overall, this work is still better than the similar Larousse Dictionary of Women (LJ 1/97), which contains about 3000 biographical sketches and many illustrations but no subject index and no bibliographical references. The Northeastern Dictionary has a general bibliography, occasional bibliographical references at the end of entries, and a useful subject index. Recommended for public and academic libraries.--Patricia A. Beaber, Coll. of New Jersey, Ewing Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Booknews
This update of the 1989 edition surveys the lives and achievements of some 2,100 noteworthy women (even Ruth Ellis, the last British person to be hanged for murder), from 20th century Polish weaver Magdelena Abakanowicz to Italian ballerina Virginia Zucchi. Beyond a resume of basic facts and brief biography, many entries in two-column format provide a reference and/or cross-reference(s). The index is arranged by the further delineated subject categories of public life, cultural life, physical achievements, and dynamic characters. Alas, no photos are included. Annotation c.
