Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
In this entry in the Global Profiles series, Price-Groff presents a dozen women from around the world who have been official leaders, such as Margaret Thatcher of Great Britain and Gro Harlem Brundtland of Norway, or unofficial leaders, such as Eva Per�n of Argentina and Aung San Suu Kyi of Myanmar (formerly Burma). Every essay begins with a boxed anecdote, brief biography, and any controversy, such as Winnie Madikizela-Mandela's trial, and Benazir Bhutto's two-time firing from her position as Prime Minister of Pakistan. The writing is pedestrian and awkward, and, for such a sterling and diverse group of women, the quotes highlighted are models of clich� and platitude. However, with a bibliography and life chronology for each woman, the book will be a useful source for school reports, for locating just a little more about Golda Meir, Barbara Jordan, Corazon Aquino, Indira Gandhi, or Violeta C'amorro.
