Want to run a Greyhawk Campaign?

I want to run my next 3.5 campaign in Greyhawk. Is the a 3.5 manual for Greyhawk like Faerun?

If not, what should I buy to have a campaign overview of the World of Greyhawk?

No, the campaign guides are nothing alike. There is no 3.5 Greyhawk revision, technically if you have the core rules then that is Greyhawk legal. For example all the gods in your PHB are in truth Greyhawk gods. But as in all things with the core books its just the tip of the iceberg for Greyhawk.

Get the Living Greyhawk Gazetteer

and look for articles in Dragon and Dungeon for up to date campaign information.

yes we Greyhawkians have been waiting for a Greyhawk book for quite some time. Don't be turned off by the lack of a book either, I'm sure you'll find the world of Greyhawk to be quite enjoyable.

So if I wanted something kind of equivalent to the Faerun stuff I would have to go back to 2 or 1st edition and get one of the old boxed sets?

Depends what you mean by "Faerun stuff". If you mean regional accessories ala Silver Marches and Unapproachable East, yes. Look at the From the Ashes era sourcebooks.

If you want something like the "Player's Guide to Faerun", then, well...there isn't one, and never has been. Erik Mona has a two-part article in Dragon & Polyhedron that details regional feats, but that's about it. Greyhawk never had Greyhawk-specific 3e material that needed updating to 3.5.

That's the short, basic answer.

More interested in stuff like realm maps, current political situation and a summary of each of the kingdoms and meta-organisations.

Ah. The Living Greyhawk Gazetteer is what you want. It updated the setting to 591 CY, when Living Greyhawk started. For later developments ( I believe they're up to 593 or 594 CY), and any detailed maps, you'd have to consult th various Living Greyhawk region websites.
