Abstract
When initially published in 1987, the first edition of this book became an indispensable summary of librarianship and publishing around the world. It received much acclaim and was included in the tenth edition of Euguene Sheehy's Guide to Reference Books. Much has changed in the world of books, and this revised edition provides current and comprehensive coverage of the present state of libraries and publishing in the United States and abroad. While sections of the first edition have been updated, this revision also includes material on additional topics. The second edition offers almost 1,000 entries compared to the 644 entries of the first edition. The heart of the volume is an alphabetical listing of countries from around the world. Each entry provides valuable data about the political and economic condition of the country, illiteracy rate, and ratio of library holdings to inhabitants. More specific information is then provided about the number of libraries and their holdings, the number of publishers, and the number of books and newspapers published per year. Libraries of special note are indicated. The rest of the volume contains fascinating information on quotations about books and librarians, biographical sketches of book people, and representations of book-related topics in creative works. This new edition also provides a guide to Latin terms used in the book world, information on job search strategies for librarians, library awards and grants, and helpful advice for librarians and supervisors.
