In a highly original volume that includes an extended essay on the Orwellian use of language that characterizes U.S. political culture, cartoons, and a cross-referenced lexicon of doublespeak terms with examples of their usage, Herman and Wuerker highlight the deception and hypocrisy contained in the U.S. government’s favourite buzz-words. This spirited book offers abundant examples of duplicitous terminology, ranging from the crimes of free enterprise to media coverage of political events. Illustrations are by Matt Wuerker.
