Description
The second installment in this projected ten-volume series gathers 259 revised and reordered essays from Salem Press's Great Lives from History series, and adds 19 new biographies. Represented are figures as distant as Odoacer, a fifth century leader of the Huns, and as recent as Jan Hus, a Czech religious reformer martyred in 1415. Each biography includes a brief statement summarizing the individual's contribution; provides details about the individual's upbringing and environment, life's work, and place in history; and ends with an annotated, evaluative bibliography.
