International in scope, A to Z of Computer Scientists is a comprehensive biographical collection of more than 100 male and female scientists, past and present. Designed for high school students, researchers, teachers, and general readers, the book is an ideal reference to well-known scientists and their less well-known contemporaries. Each entry provides the subject's full name, birth and death dates, nationality, and field(s) of specialization. The essays focus on the scientist's work, achievements, struggles within the milieu, and contributions to the field, supplemented with information on family and educational background and specific sources for further investigation, giving the reader a well-rounded profile.
In addition to 50 black-and-white photographs, the book features an index of the scientists profiled arranged by field, a chronology of important events in computer science, a glossary of terms particular to computer science, a bibliography of print sources and websites for further research, and an extensive general index.
