CHOICE Review

Numerous changes in the monetary and financial environment in recent years have created information needs for those practitioners and policymakers who "should be aware of modern theoretical advances" and those academic researchers who "should know more about how modern capital markets and credit institutions actually work." Aimed at that audience, this unique collection of information shares editors with The New Palgrave: A Dictionary of Economics (CH, Nov'88) and has an international advisory board of economists from universities, financial institutions, etc. Of the 1,008 essays and 70 short glossarial entries, written by more than 800 experts, 80% are new and all but one of the remaining essays, some revised, are drawn from The New Palgrave. The essays range in length from a column to 15 pages and their bibliographies from three citations to more than 80. Essays on related topics are linked by cross-references. International in coverage, the encyclopedia treats the national monetary and financial systems of 29 countries (the US and UK are each covered in several essays) and 8 stock exchanges. Many essays were written by economists who were major developers or contributors to the topics they discuss. Contributors are listed at the end of Vol. 3 with their affiliations and the essays they prepared. There is a guide, "Using the Dictionary," and appendixes that include a "List of Entries A-Z," a subject classification, and a list of 104 subheadings. Recommended for all academic and corporate libraries supporting research at advanced undergraduate or graduate level in money and finance, theoretical or institutional. J. A. Aufdenkamp; Northern Illinois University
