This review is from: Der Fischer Weltalmanach 2013 (Paperback)
The Fischer- Almanach is a well-respected annual, detailed and comprehensive account of every country on the planet, including supra-national organisations such as the UN and its various bodies and the EU. It's up to date at July in each year and is published in September. Political information goes rapidly out of date, of course, and there is now web-based information readily available for most of us. Nonetheless, to have at hand an encyclopaedia, for that is what it is, which can be flicked through for an elusive bit of information, say, the capital of Chad or the government of Switzerland or for a summary account of the origin and competence of the International Court of Justice, will always be a useful complement to the smartphone or laptop. Each edition contains a contemporary theme, which brings together data affecting every country. The 2013 edition has an extended discussion of the political and economic issues surrounding Water. So it's good for browsing as well as looking things up.
