Overview

There is no other book to turn to for a comprehensive guide to history's biggest names including, to name just a few, Homer, Julius  Caesar, Jesus, Christopher Columbus, Michelangelo, William Shakespeare, J S Bach, Abraham Lincoln,  Karl Marx, Pablo Picasso, Sigmund Freud, Adolf Hitler, and Mao Zedong. And from an Australian perspective, Dictionary of World Biography has more than enough of  those within our own country who have in some way shaped our own history: Elizabeth Blackburn, Don Bradman, Henry Lawson, Mary McKillop, Macfarlane Burnett, Sidney Nolan, Kerry Packer, and Peter Singer.
