Internet Innovators by Salem Press( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

From Booklist: The alphabetical essays in these companion volumes provide detailed biographies of individuals who contributed to the development and expansion of the Internet. Fields of specialization include mathematics and logic; physics and engineering; computer software, hardware, and programming; Internet management, marketing, commerce, and security; social media; applications; news and entertainment; and ethics and policy. Internet Innovators features some lesser-known names (obvious exceptions include Mark Zuckerberg, Tina Brown, and Julian Assange), but subjects' affiliations represent an array of most-visited sites: YouTube, Yahoo!, Google, Amazon, WebMD, and so on. There is even an entry for the hacking group known as Anonymous. The signed entries run around 2,000 words. Each starts with a list of facts, followed by a three-part essay covering the subject's early life; his or her life's work (arguably the most important part, discussing the individual's contributions and impact); and personal life. An article-specific list of further-reading selections is also provided. In most cases, the book's contributors are well matched to their subjects and provide detailed profiles and sufficient background information to establish the importance and relevance of their subjects, whether in technological, social, economic, or political context. Additional features include a time line covering 1957 to 2012, an annotated bibliography of 67 print titles, and a "Biographical Directory" of short yet satisfying summaries. Illustrations consist of pencil sketches of each subject, which will not photocopy very well. There are three indexes (category, company, and general). The preface indicates that selection criteria included each individual's significance, his or her relevance to academic curriculum, and the appeal to the intended audience: high-school and undergraduate students. These volumes should serve as authoritative resources and are recommended for high-school, large public, and academic libraries

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

American Heroes surveys more than 200 U.S. heroes from the American Revolution through today, in 39 areas of achievement, including Agriculture and Astronomy, Aviation and Space Exploration, Biology, Business, Civil Rights, Computer Science, Diplomacy, Education, Engineering, Environmentalism, Exploration, Government and Politics, Invention and Technology, Law and Jurisprudence, Literature, Mathematics, Medicine, the Military, Religion, Native American Affairs, Nursing, Philanthropy, Philosophy, Physics, Public Health, Religion and Theology, Social Reform, Sports, Theater and Entertainment, and Women's Rights. The over 200 people covered in set include 41 African Americans, 148 Euro-Americans, 6 Jewish Americans, 3 Latino Americans, 15 Native Americans, 2 Pacific Islander Americans and 63 women. All the essays in this set have been selected from the popular Salem titles, Great Lives from History: The 18th Century, Great Lives from History: The 19th Century, and the upcoming Great Lives from History: The 20th Century. Each essay has been fully revised and updated for this brand-new, three-volume set. Each comprehensive, in-depth essay is approximately 5 to 6 pages in length. Essays are arranged in a standard format which includes vital ready-reference data; identification (such as "Astronaut," "Baseball player," "Civil Rights activist," or "President of the United States"); a summary abstract of the person's key role and importance; dates and places of birth and (where applicable) death; a list of "also known as" names and nicknames; a list of areas of achievement; several paragraphs covering "Early Life," on upbringing and education; substantial text on "Life's Work," addressing career and achievements; and a "Significance" section that summarizes the individual's major contributions. Every essay ends with a "Further Reading" section that lists three to ten annotated books and other print sources for further study; these bibliographies are up to date through 2007. All essays are signed by academicians and other expert contributors. - Publisher
