Choice Review

Miller grants that "the retirement area is a very abstruse and minor subset of the business world." This partially annotated bibliography is an illuminating guide to a body of literature that is often proprietary, fugitive, and ephemeral, but treats a topic of limited concern in most libraries. Miller, a librarian for an actuarial consulting firm, is plainly familiar with retirement plan literature. He categorizes the 1,800 selected items into surveys, promotions, periodicals, monographs, and theses. From these, a core library collection is recommended. Relevant databases, indexes, and a list of organizations are also described. Social security and some other related topics are intentionally excluded; otherwise, there is an effort to be comprehensive for material published within the current decade. Citations are well indexed by author, subject, and title. Recommended only for the largest of business libraries or collections with an emphasis on the topic of retirement planning. -S. P.
