I recently bought the Kindle version and immediately scanned it to see if it mentioned an interesting reference to the Third International at the beginning of the Nero Wolfe novel 'Gambit'. Wolfe's assistant, Archie Goodwin, finds Wolfe in front of the fireplace, tearing out pages of the newly-published Third International and throwing them into the fire, stating that it was 'subversive' and 'threatened the integrity of the English language - perfect for Wolfe! Unfortunately, this new book does not seem to contain this choice reference.
In addition, during a 'Q&A' interview with Justice Scalia on CSPAN, in his chambers in the Supreme Court, they showed a close-up of the new official portrait of the Justice, showing his hand on a book, which happened to be the Second International. This being somewhat consistent with Scalia's judicial style. I suspect he agrees with 'Nero Wolfe' in regards to the Second vs Third International and his choice of dictionaries is not accidental.
In any case, a very good book and good addition to my lexicographic library, which is currently dominated by material on the OED.
