History in Quotations - 7th Apr 2017

History in Quotations A historical reference work with a difference:
History in Quotations by MJ Cohen and John Major

An original approach to history which brings the last 5000 years to life through the medium of quotations. The book is well cross-referenced and comprehensively indexed so that speakers, subjects, and events can be easily located. 

Just an example:
"We are not about to send American boys 10,000 miles away from home to do what Asian boys ought to be doing for themselves," said President Lyndon B Johnson in 1964. Johnson campaigned for election in 1964 as the candidate pledged to keep America out of the war, as Wilson had in 1916 and as Roosevelt had in 1940:
""I shall say it again and again and again. Your boys are not going to be sent into any foreign wars."

This is an addictively browsable work of popular history.
