From Booklist
The American West is one of the most popular topics to receive Hollywood treatment. It has endured through every era of filmmaking, from silent movies, to color and digital sound. It created stars from bit-part players, such as John Wayne and Clint Eastwood, both on the big screen and on our television sets. The popular appeal of westerns is reflected in TV revivals of the genre, such as Doctor Quinn, Medicine Woman and The Lazarus Man.The long and varied history of the western and of those whose creative talents helped develop the genre is well documented in the unrivaled Western and Frontier Film and Television Credits, 1903^-1995. Lentz has compiled a resource that is similar to his Science Fiction, Horror and Fantasy Film and Television Credits (McFarland, 1994).The first volume details the...

August 2002
Hardcover
·
 
From Booklist
RBB praised the 1986 edition for its completeness. The author, an independent scholar, has compiled a number of other subject encyclopedias. The preface notes the work provides a concise look at "major world figures" who met their end through political assassination or execution. The entries cover (when known) the basic facts of the act, the motive, the assassin, and the subsequent effect. Earlier assassinations in history, from Julius Caesar through 1899, are briefly described in the prologue.The approximately 1,200 entries are arranged chronologically by year and then date of the event. The length of each entry varies from one sentence to two columns, depending on the importance. In some instances, several persons executed by a tyrant are grouped together. Attempts that failed are also noted. The bibliography of...

Encyclopedia of Heads of States and Governments, 1900 Through 1945
Harris M. Lentz, III
0786405007
June 1999
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The first half of the 20th century was perhaps the most turbulent in history. Two world wars and numerous smaller conflicts significantly changed the geopolitical map, resulting in an unprecedented number of changes throughout the world. Some of the leaders in the period made an indelible mark on their nation and, in some cases, the world; others are scarcely remembered even in their own homeland. Nearly 1,200 emperors, kings, queens, presidents, prime ministers, premiers, emirs, and other heads of state or government served from 1900 through 1945, and all are included in this comprehensive reference work. Each biographical profile first gives birth and death dates, then gives an account of how the leader came to power and an overview of his or her term in office. The profiles are packed with data.

This enormous, three-volume set lists performers and other personnel associated with sf, fantasy, and horror movies and television, from the dawn of motion pictures through 1999.
