Verlagsinformation :: Publisher's information

The highly prestigious Who's Who and Who Was Who is published by Oxford University Press in a specially-designed online edition which enables readers to explore the rich biographical information in ways never previously possible.

Published every year since 1849, Who's Who is the leading source of up-to-date information about over 33,000 influential people in British public life today. Who Was Who is an invaluable historical archive which collects together the entries of nearly 90,000 people, now deceased, which were included in previous editions of Who's Who.

Unrivalled online access to unique autobiographical statements written by over 120,000 people who have made their mark on British public life...

- Over 33,000 entries from the new 2008 edition of Who's Who

- Nearly 90,000 entries from all 11 volumes of Who Was Who

- Detailed information for each person - full name, titles if any, birth date and (where appropriate) death date, family history, education, honours, career history, publications and other creative works, and contact details

- Fascinating insight into the private lives of public figures - discover who lists underwater knitting, writing unpublished bestsellers or ablative horticulture amongst their hobbies, and find out how many people describe themselves as cat lovers or belong to the Garrick Club
