Biographical Dictionary of Social Welfare in America. Trattner, Walter I., Greenwood

Press. Publication Date: 4/22/1986.


This book complements the existing literature on social welfare by providing biographical sketches of some 300 prominent Americans who were active in social work or other related endeavors. Women and minorities are well represented; excluded are theorists, philanthropists, and persons still living. The contributors are professors and researchers from the fields of social work and history and demonstrate the crossdisciplinary nature of the subject matter. Most entries are concisely and clearly written, contain relevant remarks about the person's importance in the history of social reform and social welfare, and include a list of current sources for further information. Although about half of the individuals are covered by the Dictionary of American Biography, most university and college libraries will want to purchase this volume for the increased coverage of individuals active in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s; for the critical comments about their lives; and for the updated biographical and bibliographical information.

Brewer’s Politics: A Phrase and Fable Dictionary. Comfort, Nicholas. Rev ed.,

England, CASSELL, 1995.



Up-to-date and international in scope, this admirable compendium contains a blend of hard facts mixed with witticisms, anecdotes, and folklore--all arising from people and events connected with politics. The entry for Clinton, Bill says "See Comeback Kid," where his career and presidential campaign are described. That entry carries an amusing error: Clinton's birth date is given as 1916. Despite such an error, this reference is edifying, amazingly comprehensive, and fun without being superficial. No bibliography.

From grade 7 up,-this book contains alphabetical entries that range from a single explanatory paragraph to two-to-three page discussions of constitutional issues.

Most of the content consists of nuts and bolts political science terminology as well as names linked with ideas or concepts, e.g., Marxism/Leninism. As always with this kind of work, it is amusing to see what is in and what is not: the foreign terms ost politik and detente are included, but not casus belli ; the Organization of American States but not its African equivalent (Organization of African Unity); hegemony makes it while imperialism is left out.

Siegel P., MacMillan Publishing Company, 1993, ASIN: 0026106507.



Although not the first dictionary of political quotations, this is certainly one of the best. Its breadth of coverage is impressive, and its arrangement allows easy access to more than 11,000 quotations. Ninety-nine chapters present topics from Abortion to Welfare and much more in between. Subjects we might expect to find in such a work are well represented, for example, Freedom and Liberty, Liberals and Conservatives, and Slogans and Mottoes. Some topics, however, go beyond the bounds of the typical book of political wit and wisdom: Flags, Housing and the Homeless, and Terrorism and Terrorists. Within each chapter, quotations are arranged alphabetically by author, and source citations are provided for nearly all. There are indexes by author and concept. References in both are to chapter and quotation numbers, not to page numbers, thus allowing for almost instant access to individual quotations.

Here is every facet of political life, from the pivotal and momentous to the rhetorical, the sincere, the bemused, the tongue-in-cheek, and the downright rude, with memorable words from the old hands as well as from contemporary quotable figures. There are politicians' views on political events, quips about other politicians, thoughts on the presidency, the British monarchy, Europe, economics, warfare, and the state of society, as well as deeper political truths. Fully up to date with comments from both politicians and pundits, we find: Bella Abzug on Richard Nixon: he "impeached himself. He gave us Gerald Ford as his revenge."
