This indispensable source of reliable information about governments, programs and leaders of political parties, and the political affiliations of newspapers of all countries, continues its usual high standard in the 1946 edition. The year 1945, which marked the end of the Great War, brought with it more profound and widespread changes in the form, structure and personnel of governments than any year in history. This edition of the "Political Handbook" records these changes. A section on the United Nations Organization has been added and the sections on France, Germany, Japan and many other countries have been entirely rewritten to provide urgently needed material, much of it here published for the first time.
