Who's News!: World Personalities

Who's News!: World Personalities

by Wendy Dunn, Janet Morey

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 6-9 Forty-nine brief biographies of world personalities, most of whom are still living. The people, arranged alphabetically, are from many fields, including politics, business and science. A black-and-white photograph accompanies each entry. The information is accurate and current except for the identification of Andrei Gromyko as foreign minister of the Soviet Union. Included is information about the biographees' early lives as well as their accomplishments. The bibliography at the end is general rather than person by person. Who's News! is an interesting item for the collective biography shelf. For research, students will find more information in Current Biography (Wilson) or in McGraw-Hill's Encyclopedia of World Biography. Dale Lewis, Twin Valley Middle/High School Library, Elverson, Pa .
