    Is slang a playful, innocuous outlet for youthful high spirits, or is it something more profound? Tom Dalzell delves into the subversive quality of slang and its place in the culture of dissent, analysing the origins and social application of hundreds of words created by marginalized and oppressed groups including African Americans and prison inmates, gay men, hippies, blue collar workers and even the military.
