Synopses & Reviews
Aside from his considerable political persona, William F. Buckley is remarkably skilled in his understanding and usage of the English language. Here, for the first time and in one volume, is the complete Buckley on words: a collection of his provocative thoughts on the uses and abuses of language; ideas on usage, style, and speaking; on diction and dictionaries; on Latin, letters, eloquence, journalism, reviews, interviews, and much more.
Buckleys provocative observations on the use and abuse of English, gathered for the first time in a single volume - a “veritable cornucopia of language and logic that belongs in every library” (Library Journal). Edited by Samuel S. Vaughan.
