This second, updated edition of Annotations catalogs 328 leftist and progressive periodicals that, in 1998, were either indexed in the Alternative Press Index or published by members of the Independent Press Association. Included are relatively large-circulation periodicals like the Nation and Mother Jones, but most of the entries are for small-circulation periodicals like Infusion and Social Anarchism. Because very few libraries own the 1996 edition, this reviewer was not able to compare the two editions. This one is certainly more current than the unannotated Progressive Periodicals Directory, published in 1982. The volume includes a good subject index and a "Full Text Availability" section to help patrons identify titles that may already be available through sources like NEXIS, Uncover, or IAC Insite. An excellent, in-depth tool, this would serve as a tremendous collection-development aid to libraries wishing to strengthen their progressive reference holdings.--Peter A. Dollard, Alma Coll.
