The Oxford Dictionary of Thematic Quotations Summary


The Oxford Dictionary of Thematic Quotations by Edited by Susan Ratcliffe

This is a collection of over 7,000 quotations, arranged thematically from "Courage" or "Parliament", to topical themes such as "the Internet" or "Genetic Engineering". The quotations that stand together in each particular theme range from the very old to the modern: both Horace and Maeve Binchy comment on the theme "The Present", while Desmond Morris and Jeremy Bentham give their views on the category of "Animal Rights". An author index (including descriptions and context lines) gives access to what is in the dictionary and provides information on each author.
