Former IMF staffers Tenney and Humphreys have updated this dictionary, which begins with a four-page list of acronyms and abbreviations, followed by a chronology of the Fund from 1944 to 2009. Next, a 37-page narrative focuses on topics such as par values, the gold standard, and the structure and services of the IMF. The dictionary entries that follow range in length from a paragraph to several pages and address subjects that are specific to the organization and its functions. The volume concludes with a short statistical appendix and a substantial bibliography....This dictionary should be considered for international economics collections in large academic libraries. Well written and informative.
