Description - Talking Right by Geoff Nunberg

Talking Right is Nunbergs fierce and funny narrative of how the political right has ushered in a new linguistic order, aided unwittingly by the liberal media. While Democrats wade through wonky locutions like social security lockbox, and single payer, the right has become harder, meaner, and better at claiming words like values, government, faith, and freedom for its own. In effect, conservatives have shifted the political center of gravity of the language itself to the right. Whatever our politics, Nunberg observes, when we talk about politics nowadays, we cant help using language that embodies a conservative worldview. This new paperback edition of Talking Right, featuring a step-back cover and a new introduction by the author, will be catnip to political junkies as the presidential election campaign rhetoric heats up.
