Abstract:

"This concise one-volume encyclopedia provides entries on most if not all of the dictators who have emerged worldwide since the time of Napoleon. Arranged in an A-Z format, these entries provide the basic facts on the formation and development of the dictatorships as well as references for further reading. The volume will prove indispensable to high school and college students as well as librarians wanting to know more about these individuals, many of whom are not included in the older biographical studies. Dictators discussed include: Pol Pot, Mao Zedong, Ho Chi Minh, Ferdinand Marcos, Napoleon Bonaparte, Maximilien Robespierre, Antonio de Salazar, Slobodan Milosevich, Muammar al Quaddafi, Josef Stalin, Leonid Brezhnev, Juan Peron, Manuel Noriega, Fulgencio Battista, Saddam Hussein, Adolf Hitler, and many more. Over thirty dramatic photos and a comprehensive index are included."--Jacket.
