Harper, for the Council on Foreign Relations, 1942, 202 pp.

The fifteenth annual volume of this standard reference work, revised to January 1 of this year, takes account of the political changes which have occurred throughout the world during the past critical year. Detailed information is given for countries which have been overrun by the Axis but which have governments-in-exile. The French section, which includes new decrees recently issued, gives a description of the Vichy régime. The usual data on the composition of governments, the leaders and programs of political parties, and the political affiliations and editors of leading newspapers and periodicals of all countries have been brought up to date.
