Public Profiles: Set 3

Public Profiles

This series presents biographies of public figures
unlike any published before. Covering both historical and contemporary figures,
these volumes compile The New York Times's coverage of prominent politicians,
artists, and activists, among other figures, reflecting how the public viewed
and understood these biographical subjects throughout the course of their time
in the spotlight. This unique coverage of each person's life and impact on
society is enlightening, demonstrating how greater attention—and scrutiny—can
change our attitude toward, and understanding and appreciation of, prominent
figures in the news.

• Expertly written introductions provide context for
each curated volume, equipping readers to understand the broader narrative in
which each article is situated

• Readers encounter various types of news
stories, such as feature stories, letters to the editor, op-ed pieces, book and
movie reviews, obituaries, and interviews

• Media literacy questions
encourage students to assess each article critically, identify
sources and perspective, and evaluate the ways in which information is
presented
