Publikace: OXFORD DICTIONARY OF MODERN QUOTATIONS 3rd Edition - KNOWLES, E.. "This exciting new edition offers both a vivid picture both of the

world today, and an enduring record of the landmark events and key

voices leading to it, captured in thousands of memorable

quotations. From Scott's Antarctic Expedition in 1912 to the attack

on the World Trade Center in 2001, charting watersheds such as the

two World Wars as well as the ebbs and flows of popular culture,

the quotations gathered here evoke a fascinating picture of the

social, political, cultural, and scientific highlights of modern

times. Containing more than 5,000 quotations from authors as

diverse as Bertolt Brecht, George W. Bush, Homer Simpson, Carl

Sagan, William Shatner, and Desmond Tutu, the dictionary is

organized alphabetically by author, with generous cross-referencing

and keyword and thematic indexes. This new edition features more

than 500 new quotations and 187 new authors. Gathered here are

literary figures such as Italo Calvino, J. M. Coetzee, and Toni

Morrison; politicians ranging from Franklin D. Roosevelt and

Winston Churchill to Rudy Giuliani and Bill Clinton; entertainers

such as Halle Berry and Jerry Seinfeld; and star athletes such as

David Beckham and Serena Williams. The book includes special

sections featuring quotations from cartoons, films, political

slogans, famous last words, misquotations, official advice,

newspaper headlines and more. Finally, this edition boasts a new

and unique selection process, using the largest ongoing language

research program in the world, Oxford English Corpus, to ensure

that all the most popular and widely-used quotations are here.

Informative and entertaining, stretching from the deeply serious to

the frivolous and surreal, The OxfordDictionary of Modern

Quotations, Third Edition, will be a vital part of anyone's

reference shelf, perfectly designed to answer the questions, ""Who

said what...and when...and why?""" Publikace: OXFORD DICTIONARY OF MODERN QUOTATIONS 3rd Edition - KNOWLES, E.. This new collection offers a vivid picture of the world in the 21st century, against a backdrop of the landmark events leading up to it. From Catherine Tate and the Simpsons to Mother Teresa and Winston Churchill, here are the key voices of our time. An authoritative look-up reference, and an enjoyable source for browsing.
