1 Review
Each volume of the Dictionary of World Biography contains 250 entries on the lives of the individuals who shaped their times and left their mark on world history. This is not a who's who. Instead, each entry provides an in-depth essay on the life and career of the individual concerned. Essays commence with a quick reference section that provides basic facts on the individual's life and achievements. The extended biography places the life and works of the individual within an historical context, and the summary at the end of each essay provides a synopsis of the individual's place in history. All entries conclude with a fully annotated bibliography.

Respected Sir;
My name Dr. Aloysius Lawrence the publisher of Personalities of Malaysia.
I will only list 501 Biography's or less of personalities in and from Malaysia..
I write to request for affiliation with your esteemed organization.
Brief back ground
Malaysia is a fast growing nation with a few international I CONs home made. We have a lot of personalities who have shaped the growth and economic growth of Malaysia and have effective CSR programs. They have been the motivating mentor for Malaysian. My criteria is based on a point system called the POM Star system for their listing. Listing is free as such the editorial board of Personalities works independently without fear or favor. No Politicians will be listed.This is basically on individuals achievements. this publication will be released on the 19th of April 2015.
Trust that this will be in lines with our principals.
Looking forward for the affiliation
Thank You
With regards
Dr. Aloysius Lawrence
