YR 2000 SN 0485115263 9780485115260 AB "Under the Third Reich, the official language of Nazism came to be used as a political tool. The existing social culture was manipulated and subverted as the German people had their ethical values and their thoughts about politics, history and daily life recast in a new language. This notebook, originally called LTI (Lingua Tertii Imperii) - the abbreviations itself a parody of Nazified language - was written out of Klemperer's conviction that the language of the Third Reich helped to create its culture." "This brilliant, entertaining, profound, and ultimately saddening and horrifying book, is one of the great Twentieth-Century studies of language and of its engagement with history."--Jacket.
