The Foreword is written by the Duke of Norfolk and there are several fascinating articles. Craig Brown shares his amusing thoughts on distinction with us, Hubert Chesshyre gives us a privileged insight into the work of the College of Arms, Lesley Abdela takes a look.at some Distinguished Women of Today, and David Williamson traces the history of the Dukedom of York. There are also many useful lists and indexes, including a list of Clubs with their addresses and telephone numbers, and the 1988 Birthday Honours and 1989 New Year Honours lists are included in full.-A complete list of current Royal Warrant Holders is also provided. Debrett's Distinguished People of Today is an indispensable reference book for any office or library, an invaluable guide for social and official functions, and a mine of useful and fascinating information.
