Skinner writes the captivating true chronicle of the creation of Merriam Webster''s "Third New International Dictionary" in 1961, the most controversial dictionary ever published. His engaging and witty account shows how egos, infighting, and controversy shaped one of America''s most authoritative language texts.
From the Publisher:
This fascinating history of the controversial 1961 publication of Webster's Third New International Dictionary tells the story of the people who made the dictionary, those who denounced it and the forces that shaped it, illuminating this little known early episode in the culture war that continues to divide our nation. 40,000 first printing.
