The International Directory of Government is the definitive guide to people in power in every part of the world. All the top decision-makers are included in this one-volume publication, which brings together government institutions, agencies and personnel in every country and dependency in the world. Each chapter offers information about:
- the country's system of government
- the head of state
- the legislature
- government ministers and ministries
- the election commission
- the judiciary
- state-related agencies and other institutions arranged by subject heading.
For a number of countries, information has also been included about provincial government where considerable power is devolved to government at that level.
Institutional entries contain the names and titles of principal officials, postal, e-mail and internet addresses, telephone, and fax numbers and other relevant details.
'This focused Directory is well presented, easy to follow and full of useful information for governments and for those wishing to do business with governments.'- Australian Library Review
'... a well produced, attractive work. Those primarily interested in easily accessible directory data on governments should consider its acquisition.' - American Reference Book Annual
