An entertaining lexicon of contemporary language, from street slang to netspeak. Neologisms (new words) are the most acute, frequently hilarious, barometer of the course of our accelerated culture. They spring from every arena: scientific techno-babble, media jargon, sexual politics, computer culture, netspeak, street slang, political double-talk. Words filter up from the street and down from corporate think tanks. They are both genuine attempts to define new cultural phenomena and acts of bizarre euphemism dictated by political correctness and marketing agendas. From affirmative shopping (looting) to negative gross profit (a loss), A Glossary for the 90s is a guide to our rapidly changing culture and a passport to the next millennium. David Rowan writes for The Guardian. 224 pp 5 x 8
