Ranka Yearbook. International Go Federation; 1985-current.

This is a series of yearbooks about the international amateur go scene. They each contain reports about that year's World Amateur Go Championship, World Women's Amateur Go Championship, and Amateur Pair Go Championship, with selected games presented. There is then a long report on go around the world, followed by a western go tournament calendar and a list of go clubs.

There's not much reason to seek out these books. The list of go clubs is quite comprehensive, so it could be useful if you're traveling to an unfamiliar part of the world. These yearbooks are often available from Kiseido at rather low prices.
