First published in 1868, Whitaker's is the ultimate single-volume reference source--packed with thousands of facts, figures, overviews and statistics relating to the UK and the world. Whitaker's 2018 contains a comprehensive explanation of every aspect of national and local government infrastructure in the UK, astronomical and tidal data for 2018, guides to UK law, education and taxation, overviews of the water, energy and transport industries, essential calendar information, chapters on royalty and peerage, MPs, government departments and public bodies, directory listings of societies and institutions, sports results and records, reviews of the year 2016–17--covering the arts, science, and politics--and monthly summaries of the year's news. Whitaker's is also an excellent introduction to world politics with in-depth profiles of international organisations, the European Union and every country of the world. Now in its 150th edition, the book is completely revised and updated every year with at least 60% of the contents--including maps, diagrams, and color infographics--newly compiled specifically for this edition. Our dedicated team of both in-house editors and specialist contributors spend a total of around 6,000 hours updating Whitaker's annually--this includes contacting thousands of individuals to update their own organization's details, researching information from official annual reports, and gathering statistics and facts from the most up-to-date authoritative sources available. Updated continually throughout the year around 2,000 hours of editorial time is dedicated to verifying every piece of information to ensure that, unlike collaborative online sources such as Wikipedia, all the material in Whitaker's is neutral and reliable. A totally unique combination of every aspect of UK infrastructure, current affairs, world politics, history, finance, astronomical data, and reviews of the year, "Whitaker's remains the most comprehensive compendium of information in the English language," (Jon Snow) and will save hours of research and cross-referencing between different sources.

Over the almost 40 years it has been in print, Local Government in Canada has earned a reputation for being a comprehensive, straightforward, and readable text on municipal government in Canada. The book concentrates on providing a factual overview of municipal government developments across Canada. It has always included a historical and institutional focus, but has gradually broadened its scope and emphasis over the years to give greater attention to the economic and political context within which the municipalities operate, including an expanded discussion of the nature and impact of the forces of globalization and the increasing emphasis on multilevel governance initiatives. This ninth edition of Local Government in Canada updates data from the recent census, Statistics Canada, and related sources; it illustrates shifting local engagement; it captures local multi-level governing conversations about infrastructure deficits and what Canada's municipalities can contribute to global ecological well-being; it reflects on the increases in local government activism; and it seeks to capture the shifting urban focus of Canada's national government under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (elected 2015). It previews the issues leading up to the civic elections in 2017 and 2018. Finally, it concludes with the notion that democratic politics will continue to be the well-spring to good local governing.
