Synopsis: A Situationist poet, translator, and editor (of her late husband Guy Debord's letters) who has written extensively on the etymology and history of European slang, Alice Becker-Ho examines Romani argot as a form of self-defense from the State, a code for people who survived outside the law.

From the Back Cover: You are not born dangerous class. You become so the moment you cease to acknowledge the values and constraints of a world from which you have broken free. We are basically referring here to the necessity of wage labor. This line is one that very precisely separates the working classes from the dangerous classes, despite the quantities of sociological fudge that have been held at the ready in order to swamp the issue in one direction or another.... The essence of jargon is quite simply these dangerous classes' very mindset.
Alice Becker-Ho, poet, argot aficionado, translator and co-editor of the letters written by her late husband (Guy Debord, co-founder of the Situationist International), has written extensively on the etymology and history of European slang. Becker-Ho's work on argot explores a form of self-defense from the State, a code for people who live outside the law.

In slang, loan words are above all borrowings of one dangerous class from another; that these loan words, confirmed in different slangs, go back to common sources, themselves blended initially into a sort of melting pot before being redistributed via a host of different routes .
