This revised and updated edition provides up-to-date biographical information on more than 7000 principal figures in the fields of international politics, economics, legal, medical, cultural and scientific affairs. It also features leading figures from international institutions, such as the United Nations and the European Union to less prominent bodies, such as the Economic Co-operation Organization. The book includes diplomats, politicians, academics, journalists and writers. Fully indexed by organization and nationality, it should be a useful directory of international organizations, as well as an A to Z guide to leading personalities. Entries contain: name; nationality; date of birth; family details; education; career information; publications; leisure interests; contact address; telephone, fax and e-mail numbers. Two extensive indexes - entries are listed by nationality and by relevant organizations, allowing the reader to use the work as a directory of international organizations, as well as "Who's Who".
