U & Non-U Revisited

Richard Buckle, ed.
U & Non-U Revisited
New York: Debrett's Peerage Limited/Viking Press, 1978.
"In 1956 a little book edited by the late Nancy Mitford and called Noblesse Oblige hit the world like a bombshell. Profiting from the researches of the philologist, Professor Alan C. Ross, who had coined the expressions 'U' and 'non-U'--that is 'Upper-class' and 'non-Upper-class--she set about telling the man in the street just how common he was. . . . In the present book, Professor Ross has brought his lists of U and non-U words, expressions and pronunciations up-to-date." With contributions by Cecil Beaton, Diana Mitford, et al., and drawings by Timothy Jaques.
