Encyclopedia of World Biography Supplement, Volume 33, continues the augmentation of the second edition and its supplements, Volumes 18 through 32.
Originally published in 1973 by McGraw Hill, Encyclopedia of World Biography (EWB) was entirely revised and updated in 1998 with the appearance of the 17-volume second edition set-the first complete revision in 25 years. Mother Theresa. Princess Diana. Tom Clancy. Johnnie Cochran. Betty Shabazz. These are just a few of the people covered in the almost 7,000 entries on notables from every part of the world and from every time period, representing a 40 percent increase from the first edition.
Like other volumes in the EWB series, Supplement 33 represents a unique, comprehensive source for biographical information on those people who, for their contributions to human culture and society, have reputations that stand the test of time.
