Gale and Yorkin Publications broke new ground with the publication of the Dartmouth Medal-winning set, Women in World History. Now, with the release of Dictionary of Women Worldwide, Gale is again teaming with Yorkin Publications to offer something similarly extraordinary.
Unlike other women-focused dictionaries, most of which focus on a small number of famous women, this two-volume dictionary contains 25,000 brief biographical entries. In addition, Dictionary of Women Worldwide provides thousands of entries on non-U.S. figures, another unique characteristic. Includes an occupation index, ethnicity/nationality index and a chronological index.
"...this dictionary will be a very valuable addition for both academic and large public libraries. Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty/researchers; general readers."
