REVIEWS OF PREVIOUS EDITIONS

‘For more than a century and a half The Statesman’s Yearbook has provided scholars and practitioners with reliable and accurate political and economic information about the ever more complex world in which we live. Even in the age of the internet such a balanced and trustworthy resource remains essential.’ Roger E. Kanet, University of Miami and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (retd)

‘Over 1,000 pages of essential facts. Just as current but more reliable than the internet, I consult it almost daily.’ Professor R. N. Lebow, King’s College London

‘This yearbook is an invaluable source of reliable and concise information in the world of international affairs where rapid change makes it almost impossible to keep track of who is who and who does what.’ Professor Janne Haaland Matláry, University of Oslo

‘… this remains the preeminent and most comprehensive ready-reference source for current material about countries worldwide. Highly recommended.’ Donald Altschiller, Boston University Library

‘The fact that so much information can be crammed into one volume is a testament to the care and research involved.’ The Diplomat

‘All you need to know about the population of various states and countries, officials, exports, constitutions, governments, diplomatic representatives, religion, finance and basic histories.’ The New York Times
