The contributions of this book shed light on the wild zone . The term refers to the existence and experience of a group (ethnic, social, sub-cultural, sexual, religious, etc.) that, in some identifiable ways, is/was marginalized in American society.

The contributors understand the wild zone as denoting the existence and experience of a group (ethnic, social, sub-cultural, sexual, religious, etc.) which is/was marginalized in American society. Reaching far beyond the boundaries of original agenda (Edwin Ardener's and Elaine Showalter's), the term's applicability has been significantly enlarged. Its fluidity or fuzziness, however, ought to be taken as a blessing: in the rapidly changing contemporary («liquid») world it is the language that needs to keep up with new circumstances and developments, not the other way round.
