Publishers Description: Are great men and women made by their times, or do they put their own indelible stamp on the period through which they live? Without doubt, there are social, politcal and economic forces greater than any single human's ability to control and mold, but an individual can give events a certain character and direction, and in doing so they can become the living symbol for a cause or an idea. History Makers presents the biographies of just such people - the leaders who embodied a movement, and the innovators whose genius was to create something so new that, until their time, it was completely unimaginable. They are drawn from all fields of endeavor, but fall into five main categories: Politics & Leadership, Science & Technology, Popular Culture & the Arts, Business & Commerce and Knowledge & Philosophy. Uniquely, the 100 people featured in History Makers have been rated using a specially devised mathematical formular. Counting from # 100 all the way down to # 1, the entries are rated in order of the level of influence. The first book in the series reveals who the most influential person of the twentieth century was - and why.
