Beyond Hypocrisy


Product Information

Satirical essays, cartoons and a lexicon of double-speak terms used by the US government, media and corporations. At turns hilarious, enlightening and frightening.

"In a highly original volume that includes an extended essay on the Orwellian use of language that characterizes U.S. political culture, cartoons, and a cross-referenced lexicon of doublespeak terms with examples of their all too frequent usage, Herman and Wuerker highlight the deception and hypocrisy contained in the U.S. government's favourite buzzwords. This spirited book offers abundant examples of duplicitous terminology, ranging from the crimes of free enterprise celebrated in the boardrooms of Wall Street and the press coverage of elections in El Salvador and Nicaragua to George Bush's condemnation of Saddam Hussein's invasion of Kuwait -- after having just indulged in similarly straightforward aggression in Panama only one year previously."

Written by Edward S. Herman, published by South End Press, 1993.
