Summary

Summary

The second edition of the dictionary (first, 1979) appears exactly ten years after Zimbabwe became independent. The new edition treats the huge changes wrought by transition to African majority rule. Fresh entries cover new political leaders, changing governmental, cultural, and economic developments, and scores of place name changes. The dictionary also corrects and updates existing entries, and the bibliography is expanded to reflect publishing developments in the last decade.
