Paying homage to George Orwell's doublethink and newspeak, Wasserman (emeritus, information sciences, U. of Maryland) and Haurath (retired, Senior Foreign Service) decipher terms--such as abdominal protector, axis of evil, and zippies--that are misleading, euphemistic, misnomers, politically correct, or trendy. Weasel word is not defined, but one readily gets the idea. Indexing is by terms in areas from business to science and technology. Distributed by International Publishers Marketing.
