Straight from the pages of the Noted Personalities section of The World Almanac comes this refreshingly original series of biographies. Chronicling the lives of the most important people of the 20th century, these books give student readers a powerful resource for understanding how their world came to be what it is today. Enriched with historic photos of the life and times of the people being profiled, and with excerpts from primary source documents, this series will inspire critical thinking, further research, and additional reading. Each book is more than just the story of an individual. It is a powerful social history of the world one person was born into.
