The Statesman's Yearbook 2002: The Politics,Cultures,and Economies of the World (138th Edition)

Hardcover(One Hundred-Thirty-Seventh Edition)



Published continually since 1863, The Statesman's Yearbook has uniquely documented the changes of the world during its most turbulent century. Its relevance to the political and business world is as central today as it was when it was first published. To face the challenge of reporting a new century, new features include: specifically commissioned essays from major political and academic figures focusing on topical issues and countries; a foldout color section that provides a political world map for quick and easy reference and a flag illustration for the 192 countries of the world; the international organizations section has been extended and offers highly detailed account of every important international association. Each country's key historical events section has been expanded and made more comprehensive. An international economic relations section includes a ranking of all major trading partners.
