Reviews of The Statesman's Yearbook:


'…an invaluable compendium for generations of researchers, writers and politicians to draw on.'
ZAK COPE, ACADEMIC RESEARCHER

'This yearbook is an invaluable source of reliable and concise information in the world of international affairs where rapid change makes it almost impossible to keep track of who is who and who does what. The yearbook is sober and reliable, qualities that are all the more important when agendas shift with the current news in the media.'
PROFESSOR JANNE HAALAND MATLARY, NORWEGIAN MILITARY STAFF COLLEGE AND THE UNIVERSITY OF OSLO

'Over 1,000 pages of essential facts. Just as current but more reliable than the internet, I consult it almost daily.'
PROFESSOR R.N. LEBOW, KING'S COLLEGE LONDON

'This remains the preeminent and most comprehensive ready-reference source for current material about countries worldwide. Highly recommended.'
LIBRARY JOURNAL

'Perfect companion'
THE TIMES

'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.'
CONTEMPORARY REVIEW

'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'
THE DAILY TELEGRAPH, Victoria Glendinning's choice of Top Reference Book

' The book should be in every office which is concerned with world trade and indeed, in every school which produces the future traders. It is an essential tool of all global thinking.'
THE GEOGRAPHICAL MAGAZINE

'The Statesman's Yearbook is the most convenient and reliable starting point for information on international affairs. Its coverage is unparalleled for a one-volume resource, and it has never let me down.'
SENATOR GEORGE J. MITCHELL

'A concise but comprehensive guide to world politics and economics. Reference at its best.'
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.'
GODFREY SMITH, THE SUNDAY TIMES

'In a volatile political world, this annual publication brings a sane voice to its presentation of the vital information every diplomat needs. And all in one volume. An essential purchase.'
LONDON DIPLOMAT

'The SYB remains an indispensable, resource for reference librarians and others in need of quick, basic, accurate information.'
AMERICAN REFERENCE BOOKS ANNUAL

'One of the top 20 best reference sources of the millennium.'
