Oxford Dictionary of National Biography 2001-2004

New Edition

Edited by Lawrence Goldman

  • More than 800 new biographies and over 250 portrait images from the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography in print for the first time.
  • This volume extends the coverage of the Oxford DNB, first published as a 60-volume print set in 2004, to include biographies published annually as part of the Oxford DNB's online edition.
  • Includes the life stories of the people responsible for some of the major developments in national life during the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, in politics, the arts, business, law, military service, sport, education, science, and medicine.
  • Compiled to the same high academic standards as the multi-award winning 2004 edition, and written by specialist authors, many of them leading figures in their field.
