Zimbabwe, one of Africa's longer, more promising countries, has been in the news a lot recently-for all the wrong reasons. This more than justifies a third edition. Zimbabwe has witnessed an incredible amount of history in the relatively short span of eighteen years. The new edition of this dictionary updates the dictionary to keep it abreast of the changes in the country. Hundreds of fresh entries cover new political leaders, changing governmental, cultural, and economic developments, and scores of place name changes. There were also corrections to existing entries and an expanded bibliography.

MEDIA REVIEWS
An invaluable resource with good cross-referencing and an extensive bibliography. Certainly it is a book that students of Zimbabwe should possess. * Journal of African History *
Entries are well written and wide-ranging, covering everything from the aforementioned rock paintings to agriculture, ethnic groups, languages, historical figures, political parties, movements, and newspapers. Highly recommended. * CHOICE *
Revised to reflect recent events, this edition contains entries on people, places, institutions, events, ethnic groups, and political parties influential in the political, social, cultural, and economic life of Zimbabwe. It also includes entries of historical significance, with reference to the colonial period and the movement for independence. Details of this history are covered in the introductory essay, and in a separate chronology. Rupert is a researcher at the University of Zimbabwe; Rasmussen in a reference book editor. * Reference and Research Book News *
