Praise for former editions:

“Nobel Prize Winners seems to me to meet its declared aim very well. That is, it gives students and general readers, in easy-to-understand form, brief but authoritative sketches of the lives and work of hundreds of men and women whose ideas helped transform our century.”
Gerald Holton, Professor of Physics and History of Science, Harvard University

The main body of this edition of Nobel Prize Winners, comprises the biographical profiles of all 201 winners from 2002 to 2018, arranged alphabetically. Each profile offers a narrative overview of the laureate's life and career, while focusing on his or her prizewinning work and its significance. Each laureate, even if part of a two or three person winning team, has been given a separate profile. Although resulting in a certain amount of repetition in descriptions of joint work, this permits the reader to find in one place a unified account of an individual laureate's work.

Each article includes:

  1. birth and death dates
  2. the category of prize he or she was awarded
  3. the name of any other individuals sharing the prize
  4. bibliographies or further readings

The profile itself is written chronologically, with the following subheads: Early Life and Education; Career; and Impact. Readers will get a strong sense of the experiences and actions that led to this prestigious award, as well as accomplishments, both personally and professionally, following the win.

Research Features:

  1. Finding information on the Nobel Laureates has never been easier.
  2. Trace the development of related achievements through cross-referencing of Laureates mentioned in profiles other than their own.
  3. Consult complete lists of Laureates organized by category and year.
  4. Find Laureates by country of residence—lists also note nation of birth.
  5. Select bibliographies of books and articles help you easily find additional reading by and about each Laureate.

Information on the History of the Prize, Founder, and Selection Process:

Nobel Prize Winners includes information on how the Nobel Prize was established, the history of the Nobel Prize and Nobel institutions, and the processes by which Laureates are selected and prizes awarded. You'll also find enlightening the biography of Alfred Nobel, who established the prize.
