This third edition lists books in print in Zimbabwe at the end of 1997. The Zimbabwe Book Publishers Association previously produced books in print to the end of 1994, and a separate directory of Zimbabwe publishers. This new edition combines an updated directory of publishers. The books in print are arranged by author and title listings and a subject index. The subject index is divided into three sections: primary textbooks, secondary textbooks and general books.
Full bibliographic information is given: author, title, date of publication, number of edition, series, price, publishers names, and ISBN.
