In the wake of the Republican revolution of 1994, when the G.O.P. won majority status in the U.S. House of Representatives and House Speaker Newt Gingrich's Contract With America made best-seller lists, Bruce J. Miller began collecting the verbal and rhetorical gems of freshman Republicans and their many friends in the media—as well as a smattering of oddities from the other end of the political spectrum. Take Them At Their Words is an amusing, shocking and revealing compendium of quotes taken from a wide variety of sources such as the Congressional Record, radio and television, newspapers, books, magazines and websites. The quotes are grouped under headings like "Earth day at the G.O.P." and "Love Thy Neighbor." Twelve contemporary political cartoons are also included.
