Additional Book Details
The Washington Information Directory (WID) is one of the most historically successful publications at CQ Press. Although it is a "directory," it has lived in the Library/Annual Edition portfolio because it has a unique profile—it is topically organized, and within the taxonomic structure the relevant organizations are listed not only with contact information but with a brief paragraph describing what the organization (whether government or non-governmental) does related to that topic. It is focused on Washington—an organization must have an office in Washington to be listed. These descriptions are not boilerplate advertising material from the organizations; rather, they are hand-crafted by a talented freelance research team. In addition, WID pulls together more than 50 organization charts for federal agencies, congressional resources related to each chapter topic, hotline and contact information for various specific areas of interest (from Food Safety Resources to internships in Washington), and an extensive list of active congressional caucuses and contact details. WID has two appendices, one with thorough information on congresspersons and committees, and the second with governors and embassies. This new edition will seek to include ever more organizational listings to increase breadth of coverage and appeal.
