Another book, fat and amusing, is “Churchill By Himself: The Definite Collection of Quotations” (Public Affairs, $29.95). The funny statements, accompanied by notable wisdom, are a fine addition to the Churchill canon. The book's editor, Richard Langworth, is author of “A Connoisseur's Guide to the Books of Winston Churchill” and editor of “Finest Hour,” the journal of Winston Churchill.
A paperback apt to be interesting mainly to avid Churchill scholars is “Churchill's Empire: The World That Made Him and The World He Made” (St. Martin's, $16.99).
