In This Review In This Review
Political Handbook of the World, 1929
By Malcolm W. Davis and Walter H. Mallory
Yale University Press (for the Council on Foreign Relations, New York), 1929, 204 pp.
This is a revised and enlarged edition of the volume published last year, and is marked by the same careful editing. The programs of the political parties, the composition of the parliaments, and the characteristics of the press of the various countries are again set forth, and a list of the more important periodicals devoted to international affairs has been included. During the last twelve months general elections have been held in 27 countries and the cabinets of 35 countries have been entirely changed or reorganized. All these changes have been included in the new volume, and the information has been brought down to January 1, 1929. In addition, a section on the United States has been added. This is a most useful book to all those who wish to follow intelligently the course of political events in other countries.
