About this product
- DescriptionFrom the first woman Nobel Peace Prize recipient, Bertha von Suttner (1905), to the latest and youngest female Nobel laureate, Malala Yousafzai (2014), this book in its second edition provides a detailed look at the lives and accomplishments of each of these 16 Prize winners. They did t expect recognition or fame for their work - ecomist Emily Greene Balch (1946) was surprised to learn that anybody knew about her. But they did t work in isolation: all met with discouragement, derision, threats or - in Yousafazi's case - attempted murder and exile. A history of the Prize and a biographical sketch of Alfred Nobel are included.
