The Almanac Of Women And Minorities In World Politics

Front Cover
Avalon Publishing, May 18, 2000 - Political Science - 504 pages
The Almanac of Women and Minorities in World Politics is a reference book that provides political and biographical details on the achievements of women and minorities in the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of every nation (and most dependent territories) in the world. The "Executive" section on a particular country might include information on that country's first woman president, or its first minority prime minister, for example. It also includes information on the first female cabinet member, and first female ambassador. Likewise, the "Legislative" section provides details on the first women and minority members of the national parliament. And, the "Judicial" section might give data on the country's first women and minority judges. The book also features a number of shorter, politically-oriented biographical sketches that chronicle all the women--and certain minority individuals--who have influenced the political environment of their nation, either locally or internationally, both adversely and constructively, since 1900.
