Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This informative bibliographic work features descriptive reviews of 13 global statistical publications, including Kurian's Illustrated Book of World Rankings (LJ 3/1/97); more than 150 topical statistical resources; and 250 electronic databases. Many of the works covered are published by government agencies or international organizations. The topical statistics section includes agriculture, energy, fisheries, population, steel, trade, geographical regions, and other subjects. Each entry includes bibliographic information, purpose and scope, data organization, methodology, and chapter contents. The appendixes include information about publishers, the International Statistical System, and the International Statistical Series. While lengthy entries limit this book's usefulness for ready-reference purposesfor example, the review of a 1091-page sourcebook runs more than 40 pages owing to the listing of chapter tablesthis is potentially useful in finding the right source for a certain statistic.
