Choice Review

Despite its deceptive title (it is not a dictionary), this book is an excellent primer on general economic concepts. Besides detailed definitions, it offers 11 well-written, highly readable essays contributed by respected academicians and consultants that could easily serve as a classroom supplement or replacement for formal texts. Arranged in three parts ("The New Economics," "The Global Context," and "The World Tomorrow"), the essays include brief bibliographies, and where appropriate, data, charts, and graphs. The dictionary section consists of 180 informative entries, laced with numerous cross-references to related terms and to the introductory essays. To further aid readers, a three-page "Grouped List of A-Z Entries" organizes dictionary terms into broader and narrower categories (e.g., "macroeconomics--business cycles"), but this list may easily go unnoticed, since it is awkwardly placed between the last essay and first definition. Highly recommended for all students, faculty, and anyone concerned with business, economic development, or international affairs; given its readability, libraries may want to catalog this work as a regular circulating item rather than a reference work.
