Biography is one of the most popular genres of writing today. The primary reason it enjoys such a large following is that it concerns human interest stories. nFew of us are immune to all of the many motives that draw us to read such stories: curiosity about the lives and thoughts of other men and women, a wish to measure our personal achievements against theirs, an interest in studying the lives that can serve as models of heroism or villainy and a desire to learn how much influence, if any, individuals have on the world in which we live. nThis authoritative source provides instant electronic access to biographies on living and deceased individuals whose achievements are important to understanding social and cultural history. Featuring the up-to-date entries from the 17-volume "Encyclopaedia of World Biography", second edition, and the "Encyclopaedia of World Biography Supplement", this disc features profiles on individuals from all historical eras and areas of the world.
