This volume is an inaugural lecture delivered before the University of Oxford on 27 November 1992. Eagleton ranges widely over a number of topics of relevance to contemporary culture: the loss of a sense of corporate cultural identity in the contemporary crisis of "nationhood" and the factors responsible for this erosion; the conflict between a traditionalist conception of culture and a "postmodern" one; the assumed decline in cultural standards; and the teaching of English in schools.

Jean Aitchison explains that the role of the Rupert Murdoch Professor of Language and Communication is twofold: researching into key aspects of language, especially of the media, and educating future gatekeepers or "lock-keepers", those who will filter and transform incoming floods of information. Lock-keeper education involves promoting clear communication, computer skills, and knowledge of language, in the sense of knowing how it works. Media language is inventive and creative - but it can only push language along in the direction in which it is already going. Use of individual words matters less that the context in which they are used, and metaphors can be all-powerful. These points are made with illustrations from some changing lexical items: "mini-", "wimp" and "joyriding". This book should be of interest to scholars and students of linguistics and media studies.
