Item description for 50+1 Greatest Modern Heroes (50 Plus One) by Lucas Otto...
The definition of a modern hero is not just some great general or statesman but also men and women who have influenced society, changed its views, sought to make the world a better place, entertained us or made us laugh and even, gave their lives for their ideals and their values. Our heroes are men and women from around the world, who through science, politics, war, letters, music, sports and the media stood above even the best of us. They often speak to us directly and indirectly about the things that are most important in our lives and they challenge us to e like them, to follow them, to act like them and ultimately to respect them-even if we do not always agree with them. Many of the heroes in this book are household names while others are more anonymous, but without them, our lives would be significantly different.
