The tracer's goals are to identify the source of a quotation, to find or to produce detailed citation based on a reliable edition of the work, to find an authoritative text of the passage being traced, and to do all this in t he shortest time possible and with the least possible amount of effort. From The Critics Booknews A collection of short quotes arranged by topic. Each conveys a clearly stated philosophical axiom, general truth, or fundamental principle. A guide to tracking down the particular haystack your needle came out of. Details sophisticated methodologies like looking up the quote's rarest word in the dictionary (your quote may be the example cited), and memorizing the list of people who probably didn't say it. Considers foreign languages, and includes a massive bibliography of concordances for nearly everyone. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
