Word of the week: Cudgel

As in: “Information is a beacon, a cudgel, an olive branch, a deterrent—all depending on who wields it and how.”

Levitt, S. D., & Dubner, S. J. (2006). Freakonomics: A rogue economist explores the hidden side of everything. New York: William Morrow. p. 60.

For definitions of cudgel, search the Oxford English Dictionary and General Dictionaries  of the Credo Reference e-book collection.
