Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Short and curt directives on the evils of English and their cures, including some rather far-fetched insults to everyone but young white, physically fit, Protestant males. Today's rules of political correctitude are as ephemeral as the flimsy paper covers they are bound in. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
WomanSource Catalog & Review: Tools for Connecting the Community for Women
Whether you're a writer, a journalist, or just a humanist, this dictionary is essential for defining words that are potentially biased, racist, sexist, damaging, condescending or even outdated. Words can unknowingly do damage; this is an indispensible resource that passes along the new meanings of our ever-changing language so that we can communicate without offending.
—Ilene Rosoff
