Formatted abstract
Non-specialist readers always find it difficult to locate even basic information on Papua New Guinea. The introductory chronology, the sixty-two-page bibliography and the 357 entries in the Historical Dictionary of Papua New Guinea make it the best reference work of its type available. The only real criticism I have is that Web sites should have been included in the bibliography. My conclusion on the new edition is that it is an excellent volume that deserves to be used more widely than just in libraries. It is a crucial ready reference for any one wanting a compact way to explore contemporary Papua New Guinea.
