Public Profiles: Sets 1 – 3

This epic collection 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.

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