From Library Journal:
A mixture of historical and contemporary standard terminology and jargon is explained in this newcomer to political dictionaries. New Clinton administration terms such as "Whitewater" make their debut appearance here, and some of the slang expressions included are not found in other popular dictionaries of politics, e.g., "Governor Moonbeam," "jingo journalist," and "politbabble." However, most of the 1400 words defined here are common political terms, agencies, or historical events. The appendixes include common historical documents, a list of all presidents with election results and brief biographical information, a directory of the 103rd Congress, Cabinet officers, state party chairs, and state governors. Jack Plano and Milton Greenberg's American Political Dictionary (Harcourt College Pub., 1989. 8th ed.) also provides definitions and explains the significance of 1300 terms, laws, agencies, and court cases but includes little jargon and is arranged in subject area chapters, requiring the additional step of using the index to find a specific term. Jay Shafritz's HarperCollins Dictionary of American Government and Politics (LJ 6/1/92) is far more comprehensive in its coverage of more than 5000 official terms and political jargon and has enhanced features, such as a table of presidential succession, not just a history. The 1800 terms in Safire's New Political Dictionary (LJ 11/15/93) are primarily jargon. The Real Life Dictionary is a good, basic, up-to-date, economical dictionary suitable for most collections.
