Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Originally designed for statesmen but now used by anyone needing information on the politics, cultures, and economies of the world, this yearbook is one of the longest-running annual publications in history. Compiled by Barry Turner, the yearbook's seventh general editor and author of numerous reference publications (e.g., the annual Writer's Handbook), the 2007 edition contains more than 20 percent new material, increasing its scope to 1.5 million words. A standout feature is the foldout section providing a political world map and flags for 192 countries. There are also biographical profiles of current leaders, government histories, and various historical statistics, as well as new and original essays on topical issues in international affairs. Perhaps the most important new feature is not the new print edition but the availability of the book's content onlinefor the first time. The newly created web site (www.states-mansyearbook.com), which is available at no extra cost to anyone who purchases the book, is accessed via a unique registration code found on the sticker on the book's cover. Updated regularly and offering various dowloading options, the site comes with a single-user licence giving online access to the fully searchable text. Especially noteworthy to librarians: unlimited user upgrades are available for libraries that want to network the online version for wider use, and full usage statistics can be made available at any time.-Mirela Roncevic Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
