Oxford Dictionary of Political Quotations

This thought-provoking and fascinating collection has been newly enlarged and updated. From Machiavelli to Nelson Mandela, Antony Jay (author of the famous TV series Yes Minister) has chosen the words and ideas which have shaped the world we live in today. This new edition covers quotations generated by events such as the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001, wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, upheavals in the European Union, the re-election of George W. Bush, and the British Labour government's historic third term. And of course the gaffes and the back-biting that form the everyday currency of political in-fighting are fully detailed too. Misquotations, Slogans, and other special categories are grouped together for easier access, and an extensive index helps you to trace that half-remembered phrase. 'I can only go one way. I've not got a reverse gear.' Tony Blair 'I met Saddam Hussein exactly the same number of times as Donald Rumsfeld met him. The difference is that Donald Rumsfeld met him to sell him guns' George Galloway 'That's Lazarus with a triple bypass.'John Howard, when asked if he thought he could regain leadership of the Australian Liberal party 'If I want to talk to Europe who do I call?' Henry Kissinger 'The job of the Federal Reserve is to take away the punch bowl just when the party is getting good.' William McChesney Martin Jr. 'We don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud.' Condoleezza Rice 'No one is fit to be trusted with a secret who is not prepared, if necessary, to tell an untruth to defend it.' Lord Salisbury

The Oxford dictionary of dance

With over 2,600 entries, the second edition of The Oxford Dictionary of Dance is a unique single volume reference on all aspects of dance performance written by two leading dance writers, Debra Craine and Judith Mackrell. The work covers all aspects of the diverse dance world from classical ballet to modern, from flamenco to hip-hop, from tap to South Asian dance forms and includes detailed entries on technical terms, steps, styles, works and countries, in addition to many biographies of dancers, choreographers, and companies. During the last thirty years the boundaries of dance have been radically redrawn. There has been an explosion of new activity within traditional forms like ballet, a stream of new dance languages invented by fresh generations of choreographers, and there is a growing appreciation of cultural dance forms from around the world. Fans today are likely to attend performances as varied as Spanish flamenco, Indian bharata natyam, Japanese butoh, classical ballet, and post-modern dance. With an emphasis on performance - the dance we see in our theatres today - readers will find both fact and analysis on a wide range of subjects, from styles of dance and the history of dance companies and their productions, to dancers, choreographers, and technical terms. With 150 new entries, this new edition charts developments that have occurred over the last ten years, including the rise of new digital technology in the creation and staging of dance and the move to the mainstream of formerly fringe genres such as hip-hop, as well as the arrival of a new generation of dancers and choreographers to the scene.

The Pimlico Dictionary Of Classical Civilizations

An original and unique work of reference which breaks new ground by treating for the first time the classical era of the Old World as a whole. Never before have the key peoples and events of Greece, Rome, Persia, India, and China been encompassed in a single volume, despite the fact their civilizations had much in common and laid the foundat-ions of present-day Europe ans Asia. Cotterell asserts that for too long Greece and Rome have been regarded as the classical world and its study isolated from even the major powers that confronted the Greeks abd Romans in Iran and India. Today we are more aware of the complex interrelations that once existed between the Greeks and the Persians, theMacedonians and thr Indians, the Romans and both the persians and the Sasanians. The persistent isolation of China, on the other hand, cut off by mountains and deserts from india, makes the claassical experience ther so useful for compari-son and contrast. The virtual absence of slavery in China is but one of its startling features.
