Description

This rollercoaster ride through the colorful history of slang-from highwaymen to hip-hop-is a fresh and exciting take on the subject: entertaining and authoritative without being patronizing, out-of-touch or voyeuristic. Slang is the language of pop culture, low culture, street culture, underground movements and secret societies; depending on your point of view, it is a badge of honor, a sign of identity or a dangerous assault on the values of polite society. Of all the vocabularies available to us, slang is the most alive, constantly evolving and-as it leaks into the mainstream and is taken up by all of us-infusing the language with a healthy dose of vitality.
