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, Modern Quotations charts the ebbs and flows of popular culture as well as marking the key voices and watersheds for our time. From the deeply serious to the frivolous and surreal, this comprehensive dictionary compiles key quotations of today underpinned by landmark voices of the past in over 5,000 quotations, from 1900 to 2007. This edition includes new quotes from Pamela Anderson, Kemal Ataturk, Pope Benedict XVI, David Cameron, Paula Ratcliffe, Oprah Winfrey and others.
