Choice Review

Not to be confused with another dictionary with the same title (by John J. Capela and Stephen W. Hartman, 1996), Shim et al. offer more than 2,000 brief entries; some include examples and a few have diagrams or charts. The headwords are printed in boldface and upper case, as are cross-references within the entries. Multiple senses are numbered for each definition. Six appendixes list exporting periodicals, hotline numbers, organizations responsible for statistics, international business and trade Web sites, countries, monetary units, and organizations that assist in the conduct of business (e.g., chambers of commerce). Sources for the definitions are not identified. Shim's dictionary is intended for students and business professionals, but Capela and Hartman is more reasonably priced and has twice the entries. Shim is recommended for academic libraries supporting international business programs. E. Okuma; Hawaii Community College
