Drawing on United Nations and other mainstream data, The World Guide includes all the facts,

150 countries and hundreds of Social Watch reports, showing how
countries measure up in terms of key developmental issues such as the
environment, debt and employment.

 -25 new reports on topical global issues such as green economics,
energy scenarios, the gender gap, Latin American politics and security.


- The World in Figures £ a comprehensive section
of data and statistics on child health, literacy, maternal mortality, land use,
public expenditure and other issues.


- Tables of factual information on key issues
such as debt, communications, corruption and trade, plus a unique guide to

country-by-country format it is the most accessible work of reference

travel research and fact-checking.
