Humanitarians

“...The format is easy to use and captures the most pertinent aspects of each person's contributions...The profile subjects include the famous and not-so-famous. An excellent source for information and inspiration. Recommended.” —Book Report, 11/99 “The Women in Profile series looks at women leaders in a number of different fields. The books are slim, but they pack a great deal of information inside, providing six major profiles and 15 brief biographies of other outstanding women in the field...the book design is clean, and black-and-white and color photos are included...” —Booklist, 09/99 "...The appealing format is easy to read, especially for reluctant readers doing research..." —School Library Journal, 08/99
