Great Lives from History: the Eighteenth Century

Coverage in Great Lives from History: The 18th Century is broad in its variety of areas of achievement as well as geographical scope, with a worldwide focus that includes extensive coverage of non-Europeans and women. Major world leaders appear here, as well as the giants of religious faith who were central to the century: philosophers, educators, and theologians who left their imprint on political as well as spiritual institutions. What makes this resource unique is the inclusion of figures who have received little attention in the past, from Abd al-Wahhab to Peg Woffington and Yongzheng.
