This large-format reference work simplifies the comparison of decades' worth of data from such countries: ""With this book in hand, one can answer any administrative subdivision question about any state or province in the world from 1900 through 1998""--Abstracts of Public Administration, Development and Environment. For each country there is at least one table, and usually several. Histories of subdivision changes and lists
