How to Keep up with the Commonwealth

The most useful tool is The Round Table: The Commonwealth Journal of International Affairs. Founded in 1910 by the ‘Round Table Moot’, this quarterly journal published anonymous reports until 1966. It ceased publication briefly between 1981 and 1983. Publishing five issues a year from 2000, its regular features include ‘Commonwealth Update’ by Derek Ingram and ‘Documentation’, which provides the full texts of such material as Chogm Communiqués and C-Mag reports. Leading Commonwealth figures, as well as commentators and academics, contribute signed articles. The Round Table is available on line at <www.carfax.co.uk>.

The official reference book is The Commonwealth Yearbook (produced since 1996 by Hanson Cooke for the Commonwealth Secretariat). It is the successor to The Colonial Office List and The Commonwealth Relations Office List, which were followed by The Commonwealth Office Year Book in 1967 after the CO and CRO had merged. The Foreign & Commonwealth Office (created by a further merger in 1968) changed the title to The Commonwealth Yearbook in 1987, and in 1993 transferred the title and responsibility to the Commonwealth Secretariat. The format was changed from 1996 in association with the new publishing partner.

The other important official reference book is Commonwealth at the Summit, vol. 1 Communiqués of Commonwealth Heads of Government Meetings 1944–1986 (1987) and vol. 2 Communiqués of Commonwealth Heads of Government Meetings 1987–1995 (1997). The texts from the 1997 and subsequent Chogms were published by the Secretariat in separate pamphlets. Other useful reference works include: The
