A collection of quotations from famous personages in American history.

For this new edition, the author has revised the pledge and the first two paragraphs of the foreword.

The final quotation is now from John Philpot Curran - Eternal Vigilance is the Price of Liberty - instead of FDR's - The Heart of This Nation Is Sound, to reflect the ebbing of wartime passions.

The paper is a little thinner and the binding cloth is more washable. The dust jacket is unchanged.
