Editorial Reviews

Booknews
**** Cited in ARBA 1995. A handsome annual that presents profiles of a wide selection of the world's currently most newsworthy people--people who were reported on screen, radio, and in print throughout the year. Each profile first stresses 1994 activities, giving a summary of the major events of the year for that person, then presents a concise biography, and finally offers a further reading list. Also included are obituaries of important people who died in 1994. B&w photos accompany many of the entries. Includes a cumulative index of all those who have appeared since first publication in 1991, and a cumulative index by occupation. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
