Synopsis: Over 900 in-print, high-quality paperback reference books, chosen on the basis of quality, availability and economy are encompassed by this second edition. Many valuable works available in paperback editions at substantial savings compared with their hardback editions (often overlooked in standard reviewing sources) are cited. A variety of bibliographies, dictionaries, guides and directories are included, with over 36 categories, ranging from botany, business and economics, to ethnic studies, mythology, folklore, customs, sports/recreation and zoology. The emphasis has shifted in this edition - there are more citations in higher education and computer science, for example, and restaurant guides have been omitted. Most of the entries are new and furnish full bibliographic information with descriptive and evaluative annotations. Hundreds of additional relevant titles, both hardbound and paperback are also cited. Librarians of all kinds, booksellers, educators, students, professionals and general readers should benefit from this revised and updated volume.
