Safire's Political Dictionary

William Safire

  • Explains the origin of each term, how and by whom and for what purposes it has been used or twisted, as well as its perceived and real significance
  • Revised and updated, with scores of completely new entries added to produce an indispensable guide to the political language being used and abused in America today
  • Readers will come away not only with a fuller understanding of particular words but also a richer knowledge of how politics works, and fails to work, in America
  • Written by William Safire, the language maven we most readily turn to for clarity, guidance, and penetrating, and lacerating wit
