The Dictionary of national biography by C. S Nicholls( Book )
14 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 1,236 libraries worldwide
This new volume of the DNB records the lives of 1,086 men and women who for a variety of reasons were omitted from the original version. This volume is intended as a "catch-up" volume, adding a substantial number of individuals to the record of British history. The choice of entrants is of special interest since it not only rectifies some earlier oversights but also reflects scholarly developments in British history as well as more general changes in social outlook over the period since first publication. Thus, for example there are proportionately nearly four times as many women in this volume as in the original DNB, while a richer concentration of representatives from the developing worlds of commerce and finance, industry and science from the sixteenth to the mid-nineteenth centuries points to areas of relatively recent attention by historians of the period. Similarly, the selection of some religious radicals of the seventeenth century singles out individuals whose significance has now been uncovered by modern scholarship. Among those no longer missing are: Thomas Traherne, Sylvia Plath, Francis Kilvert, Joe Ackerley, Lillie Langtry, and J.C. Merrick (The Elephant Man)

Power : a political history of the twentieth century ( Book )
11 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 912 libraries worldwide
The 20th century has witnessed power struggles of unrivaled size and complexity. The rise of the superpowers, the birth of a global community in which virtually every dispute has international ramifications, and above all the horrific escalation of violence (unimaginable when the century began), all mark our modern era. Written by a team of distinguished historians, and packed with hundreds of stunning color illustrations, Power offers a vividly narrated, informative introduction to the great power conflicts of the 20th century. Everything is covered here: the Boxer Rebellion and the Bay of Pigs, the bombing of Hiroshima and the invasion of Grenada, the Ku Klux Klan and the Baader-Meinhof group, Sikh nationalists and the Khmer Rouge, and of course the two world wars and all the major political figures of the last ninety years. Arresting photographs and maps, datafiles, six chronological tables, and more than 150 capsule biographies complement the general narrative, and the contributors include special in-depth features on topics of particular relevance to our time, such as espionage, terrorism, fanatical groups, and propaganda. Boasting a distinguished roster of consulting editors--William McNeill, Akira Iriye, and Peter Pulzer--and such eminent contributors as Paul Kennedy, Wolfgang Krieger, and Michael Geyer, this authoritative introduction is at once a panoramic survey and a valuable reference for more in-depth study of the political forces that have shaped our lives
