First published in 1868, Whitaker's is the ultimate single-volume reference source - packed with thousands of facts, figures, overviews and statistics relating to the UK and the world.

Whitaker's 2019 contains a comprehensive explanation of every aspect of national and local government infrastructure in the UK, astronomical and tidal data for 2019, guides to UK law, education and taxation, overviews of the water, energy and transport industries, essential calendar information, chapters on royalty and peerage, complete results for each constituency from the last UK General Election and an up-to-date list of MPs, government departments and public bodies, directory listings of trade unions and professional bodies, sports results and records, reviews of the year 2017–18 – covering the arts, science and politics – and monthly summaries of the year's news. Whitaker's is also an excellent introduction to world politics with in-depth profiles of international organisations, the European Union and every country of the world.

A totally unique combination of every aspect of UK infrastructure, current affairs, world politics, history, finance, astronomical data and reviews of the year, 'Whitaker's remains the most comprehensive compendium of information in the English language' (Jon Snow) and will save hours of research and cross-referencing between different sources.

Industry Reviews

'A mighty work of reference'
Sir Trevor McDonald. OBE

'Whitaker's is the place for things that everybody needs but nobody publishes - nobody else'
Matthew Parris

'Settler of argument, provider of spurious historical parallels, goad to the weary hack's mind...I become so engrossed I forget what I was trying to look up in the first place'
Libby Purves

'A source of delight as well as a gold-mine of information'
Jonathan Dimbleby
