Description: In this dynamic volume, 93 experts have selected 400 individuals representing 90 ethnic groups. In these pages you will meet:
-- Harriet Tubman (ca. 1821-1913), the legendary African American abolitionist who also occasionally served as a Union spy during the Civil War
-- Gutzon Borglum (1867-1941), the Danish-American sculptor who developed new methods of stoneworking to accomplish his towering Mount Rushmore monument
-- I. M. Pei (1917-), the Chinese American architect whose 1989 glass pyramid at the entrance to the Louvre instantly created a worldwide sensation

Coverage is equal between foreign-and U.S.-born persons and encompasses endeavors from art, science, and politics to religion and sports. Each profile suggests further reading. Includes indexes by ethnicity and profession.
