This sixth edition of the "Commonwealth Local Government Handbook" covers all fifty-three countries of the Commonwealth, thus comprising a complete reference book. It is published annually, updated and revised each year. It gives full country profiles of the local government systems in these countries, describing how local government is organised, local government structures, election systems, legislation, service responsibilities, funding, e-government, relationships with central government and forthcoming reforms in each country. The profiles are arranged in a format that allows easy comparison from country to country. It also includes a preface from Mayor Robert Montague, chairperson of the Commonwealth Local Government Forum (CLGF), and foreword from Carl Wright, CLGF secretary-general, and messages from Phil Woolas, Minister for Local Government of the UK, and Don McKinnon, Commonwealth Secretary-General.
