It includes more than two thousand quotations from more than six hundred different politicians, philosophers and journalists. The Dictionary contains quotes from the many wits and demagogues, thinkers and revolutionaries, campaigners and policy-makers, fiery orators and smoke-filled-room technocrats, utopians and realists that have inspired or joined the Labour Movement since its birth in the late nineteenth-century. In this theatre of Labour luminaries Tony Blair and Hugh Gaitskell share the stage with Clement Attlee and Fidel Castro ; Keir Hardie compares attitudes towards national defence with Dennis Healey, while Anthony Giddens and Lenin muse on the meaning of contemporary socialism."
