Reviews

'While the Yearbook is primarily a reference book, to be consulted when you would like to find out the population of a particular country, the name of its President, or the number and size of its religious denomination, it is also a delight to leaf through it, discovering unexpected facts ' - The Times Literary Supplement

'Even in an increasingly interconnected world, there is still a need to know about the national jurisdictions that make up the international state system, and this remains the great strength of the Yearbook.' - The Times Literary Supplement

'Its wealth of information is arranged in a logical and consistent manner.' - The Times Literary Supplement
