The Cambridge FactfinderBook - 2000
The Cambridge Factfinder is the most comprehensive, authoritative, and up-to-date general factbook available. Now in its Fourth Edition, the book has been regularly revised and updated, gaining a reputation for its accessibility and for the breadth of its coverage. Unlike most factbooks, The Cambridge Factfinder has a very full index (running to some 130 pages), which allows users to find information quickly and reliably. Helpfully organised into thematic sections which cover everything from science and technology through sports and games to religion and mythology, with a very thorough summary of statistics relating to countries of the world, the economy, communications, and world history, the book provides accurate answers to the widest possible range of questions. This is the ultimate one-stop reference work for anyone with an enquiring mind or a regular need to check facts and figures. This Fourth Edition has been re-designed to incorporate more information than ever before.
