Verbis Non Factis: Words Meant to Influence Political Choices in the United States, 1800-1980

Hardback
A lighthearted compilation of more than 1,000 American political slogans used between 1800 and 1980. Most were generated during presidential campaigns and reflect issues, party interests or personal idiosyncrasies of the candidates. The slogans are listed chronologically and indexed by party, personal names and key-words, each with at least one reference to a citation in which the slogan is explained in its historical context.
