2008 Hardback Edition of this Annual Guide to Who is Who in Society.
160th year of issue.
Contains more than 32,000 biographies, approximately 1,000 of these making their first appearance in Who's Who.
They are of all kinds of people from all walks of life: the arts, business and finance, the church, civil service, education, government, the law, local government, the media, medicine, professional institutions, science and the trade unions.
Each entry is in a standard form, full name and present post (as at 2008) being followed by date of birth and family details, education, career in date order, publications, recreations and address.
The entries are carefully updated both from information supplied by biographers on their annual proofs and from many independent sources of reference. As a result, tens of thousands of amendments are made, more than half the entries requiring change. The book extends to over 2,400 pages and includes an obituary and a comprehensive list of abbreviations used in the entries.
