"Witty, hard-hitting, accurate and immensely politically sound, there’s a wealth of wisdom in Richard D North’s right-wing dictionary. The first and most important battle in the culture wars is the one fought over the correct interpretation of contentious words; with this splendid book, North has fired a salvo against the Left that will resonate from one end of the battlefield to the other." - Andrew Roberts
