A new Phrase Index to Churchill quotes is available.
My Churchill quotations book, Churchill By Himself, is being updated and corrected for a new edition called Churchill in His Own Words, with an eventual e-book version as well. It contains a new Key Phrase Index that will greatly assist readers in finding the quotation they require.
Since the pagination of the new book will not change (we found only one quote which had to be removed as fictitious), the Phrase Index can also be used by present owners of Churchill By Himself. For a copy please contact me.
This new index contains close to 500 Churchill phrases entries from “Abdullah is in Transjordania where I put him” to “Zionism, my heart is full of sympathy for,” and the most famous lines from the immortal World War II speeches.
Churchill By Himself contains a 15-page index which includes quite a few key phrases, while leaving many out. There was no room to add more pages, but the publishers kindly agreed to let me replace the least-used Appendix (“The Biblical Churchill”) with a Phrase Index that offers many familiar lines readers are likely to seek.
The list also doubles as a handy quick-read for Churchill’s wit and wisdom. Browse through the entries and you’re sure to find some that are either familiar enough, or intriguing enough, that you’ll want to look up the exact words, date and place in the book.
If, even with this tool, you still can’t find what you are looking for, send me a Tweet (@rmlangworth) or an email.
“The Biblical Churchill” is not lost. It has been posted in three parts on this website, starting here.
Churchill in His Own Words will be published by Ebury Press/Random House in September 2012.
