This 49th edition of the Bahamas Handbook is a must-read for anyone who is interested in The Bahamas, whether you are living, investing, doing business or just visiting this nation of 700 gorgeous islands. It’s also a book for readers—those who enjoy well-researched, well-written articles about the nation, its economy, history and people.

On the practical side, the Handbook’s government listings give readers the most up-to-date information anywhere on the people in power after the May 2, 2007, general election. Then, of course, there are the “blue pages,” an A to Z compendium of information on everything you ever wanted to know about The Bahamas, from accommodations and investment incentives to nature, wildlife preserves and zoos.

All this and much more awaits you in the 2009 Bahamas Handbook. Good reading!
