About This Item

New York: Random House, 1999. 1st Edition, 1st Printing. Hardback. Near Fine in Fine dust jacket.. 'Review Copy' stamped on first free endpaper, else fine. Goes beyond word histories and looks at the Americanisms that reflect the spirit, mind, and heart - and contradictions - that define who Americans are. Personally, I think the phrase 'teetotaciously exflunctified' alone makes this book worth the price.
