The New American Dictionary Security/Fear Edition

Boston art performance group The Institute for Infinitely Small Things just launched a new book called The New American Dictionary Security/Fear Edition:

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.

The book, lauded by the group as "The Voice of Authority for the 21st Century," includes 67 fear and security terms that are either new (like "preparedness") or recently redefined (like "torture").
