The Fourth Edition boasts nearly 5,000 quotations--over 300 new to this volume. The additions reflect both key events of recent years and quotations from earlier periods that have lately come to light. The book showcases a who's who of politics, covering everyone from Napoleon to Barack Obama, plus such notables as Mahatma Gandhi, Sarah Palin, George Washington, Charles de Gaulle, and Jean-Paul Sartre. Antony Jay covers every facet of political life--the pivotal and momentous, the sincere, the bemused, the tongue-in-cheek. There are politicians' views on political events, on other politicians, and on economics, warfare, and the state of society. The book includes a keyword index and subject index to help you find the right quotation.
