?. . . the coverage of Statesmen Who Changed the World is comprehensive, and the treatments, on the whole, are balanced. Its key strength may lie in its singling out for attention lesser-known statesmen for beginning historians and other scholars. It is an appropriate selection for university and other research libraries.?-Reference Books Bulletin
