The Bloomsbury Biographical Dictionary of Quotations departs from established tradition in that it includes both familiar quotations and perceptive or witty sayings that are less well known. It includes, especially, sought quotations that reflect contemporary issues (eg Jesse Jackson) as well as those from literature (eg quotes both about and by William Blake) and the Bible.
The Bloomsbury Thematic Dictionary of Quotations is ideal for seeking an apt quotation on a particular theme. For example, under the entry politicians a wide variety of quotations appear, from Shakespeare, through Curzon and Churchill, to references to John Major and Paddy Ashdown.
Rawson's Dictionary of American Quotations covers the whole gamut of American life, culture and politics. By turns humourous and serious, its range includes Ralph Waldo Emerson and Joseph Kesserling on 'Sanity', Albert Einstein on 'Mystery' and Woodrow Wilson on 'Poverty'.
" In They Never Said It, Paul F. Boller, Jr. and John George examine hundreds of misquotations, incorrect attributions, and blatant fabrications, outlining the origins of the quotes and revealing why we should consign them to the historical trashcan.
