Derives from a 12th century Latin love poem, "Pamphilus.sue de amore."

This was shortened to, "Pamphilet."

The modern usage was described by George Orwell as:

"..a short piece of of polemical writing, printed in the form of a booklet and aimed at a large public.."

Nothing polemical about Pam 21, but now you know.

ARRSEpedia - it's an education.
