“Afroamerican” or “negro”? “Vertically disadvantaged” or “short”? After the spreading of the “politically correct” born in the Anglo-Saxon world, even in Italy there’s much talk of politically correct behaviour and language. Few though, know how this wide-spread expression started, and how much it can influence every aspect of daily, cultural and political life, to the point of compromising free expression of individual and social thought. This volume faces, for the first time in Italy, this difficult matter with a severe tone and with illuminating examples. Located in appendix a copious glossary of “politically correct” terminology used in the Anglo-Saxon culture and a useful reference bibliography.
