An indispensable, meticulously researched and authoritative information guide for more than 130 years, Whitaker's Almanack brings together a wider range of facts, figures and directory information than any other annual reference work. It's the essential what's what and who's who of Great Britain and the world today, providing everything a reader might conceivably wish to know in a world driven by information – no year is complete without it. New to this edition is a special supplement on the Scottish and Welsh elections.
"Whitaker's Almanack was founded in London in 1868 by the publisher Joseph Whitaker. It emphasizes the United Kingdom in the way that The World Almanac and Book of Facts (see ARBA 2011 entry 5) emphasizes the United States. For this reason, it is a useful source for current information about the United Kingdom."
