Who's Who, published in print annually by A&C Black since 1897, and online by Oxford University Press since 2008, is the leading source of up-to-date information about over 34,000 influential people worldwide who impact British public life today. Containing autobiographical listings of senior politicians, judges, civil servants and notable figures from the arts, academia, charities and other areas, it is widely seen as the standard reference work for the UK's governing classes. What makes Whos Who unique is the fact each entry is written by the subject themselves and many entries include contact details. This print and online set not only allows online access to Whos Who but also Who Was Who, an invaluable historical archive which collects together the entries of almost 100,000 people, now deceased, who were included in previous editions of Whos Who. Based on the design of the hugely successful model of the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, the online editions are built for biographical searching and link to the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography from Who Was Who when a customer subscribes to both.
Available exclusively from OUP, this print and online set offers both a permanent record in the form of the famous annual red volume (edited and published by A & C Black), and personal single-user access for 12 months to the OUP online edition that includes both Who's Who and Who Was Who.show more
