Worldmark Encyclopedia of the Nations: World Leaders
Gale Group; 11 edition | November 2003 | ISBN: 0787673307 | 3460 pages | PDF | 73,8 MB
Compiled mostly by academics, the succinctly written articles contain much current information, some of it dating from as recently as August 2000. The volume on leaders is especially useful, providing hard-to-find biographical information on lesser-known heads of state. These profiles, mostly written or updated in 2000, have been culled from a variety of print and web sources. The volume on the United Nations is a superb ready reference, describing the history and structure of U.N. agencies and including useful comparative statistical tables. A very minor quibble: the country volumes do not contain signed entries. Still, this set is an outstanding source providing reliable, comprehensive, and easily accessible information for frequently asked reference questions.
