About the Dictionary
The New American Dictionary: Interactive Security/Fear Edition is a new book by the Boston performance group, the Institute for Infinitely Small Things. The dictionary, a paperback which retails for $19.95 on Amazon.com and at the Harvard Book Store, catalogs 67 fear and security terms that are either new – i.e. preparedness - or recently redefined – i.e. torture.
The New American Dictionary is a humorous, provocative book that calls for readers to pay attention to the ways in which terminology of fear, security and war have permeated American English post-9/11.
Terms in the dictionary include: Islamofascist, Freedom Fries, Friendly Fire, Regime Change, Smart Bomb, Surge, and 62 more…
