Newsmakers -- published quarterly in paperback -- provides timely and informative profiles of the world's most interesting people. A hardbound annual cumulation makes Newsmakers a permanent reference source on 200 newsmakers of the year. Four indexes help readers locate entries by name, nationality, occupation and subject. Separate obituaries provide concise profiles of recently deceased newsmakers.
Some of the newsmakers featured in the 1996 edition include Tyra Banks, Jeff Gordon, Kweisi Mfume, E. Annie Proulx and Harry Wu.
