"All U.S. presidents have boxed entries that include a wealth of information about their private lives and public careers. The geographical section covers some 10,000 places of all kinds. Coverage includes all the nations of the world (with helpful locator maps), capitals, every U.S. state, major or historic cities and towns, important regions, notable geographic features (such as mountain ranges and ocean currents), and places that have played a part in world history or culture (such as Agincourt or the Acropolis)." "With appendixes that cover everything from Academy Award winners to the major volcanoes of the world, The Oxford Desk Dictionary of People and Places offers a wealth of reliable information in a handy, affordable format."--Jacket.
