The New Penguin Dictionary of Modern Quotations
Penguin Books Ltd
"The New Penguin Dictionary of Modern Quotations" contains over 10,000 quotations from 1914 to the present. It is the most up-to-date, inclusive and international collection obtainable. As well as featuring all the key quotations, it contains many that have not been published in any quotations book before. They have been chosen for their aptness and insightfulness, and for being representative of the author's style and thought. But it is not just in its coverage that this new collection excels: Robert Andrews introduces each author with a short, lively biography and the quotations have extensive annotation to help the reader appreciate the full context of any remark. The quotations are arranged by author but there are two other entry points to this collection which are the thematic and keyword indexes. The result is a book that is as much a companion to the modern age as it is an entertaining and useful reference tool enabling the reader to find the right quotation for all occasions. From Margot Asquith to Monica Lewinsky, from George V to Boutros Boutros-Galli and Jonathan Aitken to Frank Zappa, "The New Penguin Dictionary of Modern Quotations" is the definitive collection.
