The International Directory of Government is the definitive guide to people in power in every part of the world. All the top decision-makers are included in this one-volume publication, which brings together government institutions, agencies and personnel from the largest nations (China, India, Russia, etc.) to the smallest overseas dependencies (Guadeloupe, Guernsey and Christmas Island, etc).

Institutional entries contain the names and titles of principal officials, postal, e-mail and internet addresses, telephone and fax numbers, and other relevant details.

New for 2012

The new 9th edition will reflect changes to government ministers and ministries following twelve months of dramatic political events around the world, from mid-2011 to mid-2012, including:

  • ongoing political transformation in Middle-Eastern states such as Libya, Syria, Egypt and Yemen
  • important elections in Thailand, Russia and Peru
  • dramatic changes in the leadership of North Korea and Japan
  • turbulent political developments in countries affected by the eurozone debt crisis, including Greece, Spain, Italy and Portugal.

Users will benefit from:

  • comprehensive lists of government ministers and ministries
  • coverage of state-related agencies and other institutions arranged by subject heading
  • details of important provincial administrations, including contact details for all oblasts, okrugs and republics in the Russian Federation
  • information on all US state governors and legislatures, and on the governors and chief ministers of each of the states and territories of India
  • a section covering the newly independent nation of South Sudan

For a number of countries, information has also been included about provincial government where considerable power is devolved to government at that level.
