"Over 10 years in the making, American National Biography is a fascinating study of the people who have shaped the United States. Why replace the Dictionary of American Biography instead of merely updating it through supplements? Because the editors include new scholarship and people who were missed in the original, especially women and ethnic minorities. Numbering 24 volumes and containing 17,500 entries, the work offers readable, informative, and critical biographies for each subject, the location of their papers (if they exist), and selective bibliographies. Excellent indexes--subject, contributor, place of birth, and occupation--enhance use. This is an outstanding set that will be heavily consulted for many years to come."--"Outstanding reference sources 2000", American Libraries, May 2000.

"Featuring more than 80 new entries and hundreds of updates, this second edition of the classic Encyclopedia of American Biography (EAB) is the only in-depth, single volume resource of its kind. Comprehensive in scope and meticulous in detail, it examines more than 1,000 great Americans who have contributed to the historical and cultural richness of the American scene - from the earliest explorers to those making headlines today." "Each entry is comprised of two parts. The first, the objective section, outlines all the notable facts, dates, and events of the figure's career. The second part is a subjective essay written by a prominent scholar or authority who specializes in the biography in question. This section fills in the gaps left by facts alone - it evaluates and puts into context the subject's contributions to American life and thinking, and it discusses his or her style and personality, helping to bring the facts to life."--BOOK JACKET.
