This new edition boasts some 4,500 quotations--over 500 new to this volume. The additions reflect both key events of the past five years and quotations from earlier periods that have recently come to light.
The book showcases a who's who of politics, covering everyone from Napoleon to Malcolm X, Boris Yeltsin, and Bill Clinton, plus such notables as Mahatma Gandhi, Dorothy Parker, Thurgood Marshall, Rudy Giuliani, Al Gore, George Washington, Charles de Gaulle, Juan Per n, and Jean-Paul Sartre. Antony Jay covers every facet of political life--the pivotal and momentous, the sincere, the bemused, the tongue-in-cheek, and the downright rude. There are politicians' views on political events, quips about other politicians, thoughts on economics, warfare, and the state of society, as well as deeper political truths. Boxed features such as Mottoes, Newspaper Headlines, and Leaders bring related quotations together.
Those with an interest in politics and anyone with a healthy dose of cynicism and an appetite for irony will enjoy this sparkling tour of life in the public eye.
