This resource reveals the true identities of some 11,000 writers, actors, politicians, criminals, and a world of other people who, permanently or temporarily, wholly or partly, took a new name. Entries range from Piers Anthony to Malcolm X and all points between. Arranged by pseudonym, the entries provide the true name, vital dates, country of origin or settlement, and profession of the name-changers and, in some cases, the story behind the person's name change. A new appendix presents the terms relating to pseudonymous and changed names. Annotation ♭2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
