From Abasement ('A decent mental attitude in the presence of wealth') to Zigzag ('To move forward uncertainly, from side to side, as one carrying the white man's burden'), The Devil's Dictionary is a pertinent guide to modern living for all free-thinking individuals.

Every page crackles with biting humor and deliciously cutting observations on society, as Beirce turns a sardonic spotlight onto his contemporaries, and questions enduring ideals of capitalism, imperialism and convention.
