Reviews of The Statesman's Yearbook:
'This venerable reference work remains as indispensable as ever before. . The information contained in this one volume is prodigious and if a researcher could only have one volume to hand, this would be it.'
'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
'A masterpiece of pure quantification'

SIMON JENKINS, THE TIMES
'Over many years Macmillan has built up a deserved reputation for publishing reference books of the highest quality. The Statesman's Yearbook is one such example. Its pages are full of invaluable material about every country in the world. For someone like me who spends much of my time travelling, it is an invaluable treasure trove. I would warmly recommend it to other readers.'
THE RT. HON. CHRISTOPHER F. PATTEN, CH, CHANCELLOR OF OXFORD UNIVERSITY
'The Statesman's Yearbook is a miracle of compression: the key facts about the entire world crisply collated in 2112 tightly edited pages. It is an essential desktop guide for anyone who needs to think, write or talk about the nature and future of our unimaginably odd and constantly surprising planet. Buy this book and qualify at once as a citizen of the world.'
