World Events: The Annual Register of the Year 1959
Penguin Books. 10s.
Two hundred years ago Edmund Burke started this annual review of the year’s events. This is the first to be published by Penguin, very shortly after teh hard-cover editio, which costs £6.6.0. This edition is, then, something of a saving for anyonewho wants a good, quick, superficial,establishment-type, reference book. It covers a great deal of ground and its chronology is impeccable. The word socialism does not occur in the index. Caveat emptor!
