This is the only authoritative guide that offers a subject approach to the plentiful resources provided by international government organizations, national governments, and other foreign information sources. In addition to an overview section, 21 chapters cover rich resources of topical, statistical, and analytical information on agriculture and food; crime; health; human rights; laws and treaties; transportation; women and children; and more. Each chapter provides descriptions of Web sites, books, reports, and other important materials, and concludes with research strategies and tips on the most efficient ways to search for certain types of information.
In addition to international and foreign government sources, this book covers resources from foreign organizations, foreign universities, and commercial publishers. Appendixes identify the acronyms and initialisms that are often used in place of international government organizations' full names; the organizations' Web site addresses are also listed. Students from high school to graduate level, researchers, and librarians will find this an important reference work.
