This revised and updated book exposes and classifies racist words found among the more than 160,000 definition entries (over one million total words) in Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary. Other versions of Merriam-Webster dictionaries (as well as other prominent English dictionaries) are also examined and critiqued. This comprehensive work is the result of a 25-year study by the author, but has been skillfully reduced to a relatively few pages. Though detailed, it is written in easy-to-understand English with the offending words alphabetized and categorized. Ancient words of wisdom grace the beginning of each chapter.
