When Edwin Newman was but a lad, bright, cheery, and unberable, he was told to keep a civil tongue in his head, i.e., shut up. Je did, but since than he has expanded his imderstanding of what a civil tongue means. To him it means a language that is not bogged down in jargon, not studded with trick phrases, not weighed down with the gelatinous verbiage of Washington and the social sciences. It is direct, specific, concrete, vigorous, colorful, subtle, and imaginative, and as lucid and eloquent as we are able to make it. Includes an Index. "Civilized and immensely entertaining - and, also, an act of public service." - Richard H. Revere

(Key Words: Language, Edwin Newman, United Press International, Watergate, Ronald Reagan, Richard M. Nixon, NBC, Henry Kissinger, Gerald R. Ford, Great Britain, CIA, Democratic Party, Associated Press).
