From the pithy to the provocative, "The New Penguin Dictionary of Modern Quotations" contains more than 8,000 illuminating and highly topical quotations from 1914 to the present. As much a companion to the modern age as it is an entertaining and useful reference tool, it takes the reader on a tour of wit and wisdom from such varied sources as Charlie Chaplin, Frank Zappa, Winston Churchill, Monica Lewinsky, and George V.

Arranged alphabetically by author, each quotation is prefaced by succinct biographical information about the speaker, and many are followed by a brief note to explain its context and the responses it received. Together they give unparalleled insight into the global culture, politics, and thought of the last nine decades.
