Apparently they forgot to update that page when they revised the book.
For the current publication dates of all MB pamphlets, see the following
According to Mike Kauffmann, <email@example.com>, the following
books have been issued in 1996-1998.
1996: Archeology, Climbing, Crime Prevention, Cyvcling, Electricity,
Electronics, Indian Lore, Public health, Radio, Sports, &
1997: Entrepreneurship, Environmental Science, Farm Mechanics,
Hiking, Personal Management, & Safety

Apparently they actually revised it in 1996, but National Supply didn't
actually start distributing it until mid 1997, since they still had a
bunch of the old books in stock. That then caused some confusion, since
it included the new requirements before the new (1998) requirements book
I'm not sure why Mike K listed a 1997 date, if the book says 1996.
