Historical Dictionary of Zimbabweby R. Kent Rasmussen, Steven C. Rubert
Nearly twenty years after Zimbabwe's independence, this important resource is going into its 3d edition. Zimbabwe has witnessed an incredible amount of history in the relatively short span of eighteen years. The new edition of this dictionary updates the dictionary to keep it abreast of the changes in the country. Hundreds of fresh entries cover new political leaders, changing governmental, cultural, and economic developments, and scores of place name changes. There were also corrections to existing entries and an expanded bibliography.
Author Biography: Steven C. Rubert was a research associate at the University of Zimbabwe and is currently Associate Professor of History at Oregon State University. R. Kent Rasmussen has published several books on the history of Zimbabwe's Ndebele people.
