Overview
2013 Reprint of 1930 Edition. Exact facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition Software. In nineteenth and early Twentieth Century America a Jack Roller was a guy who hung around the skid row sections of big cities and robbed those unwise enough to get visibly drunk by beating them up and stealing their valuables. Vivid, engaging and authentic, this is the autobiography of a delinquent-his experiences, influences, attitudes, and values. The "Jack-Roller" helped to establish the life-history or "own story" as an important instrument of sociological research. The book remains as relevant today to the study and treatment of juvenile delinquency and maladjustment as it was when originally published in 1930. CONTENTS; I. Value of Delinquent Boy's Own Story II. History of Stanley's Behavior Difficulties III. Stanley's Social and Cultural Background Stanley's Own Story IV. Starting Down Grade V. The Baby Bandhouse VI. Getting Educated VII. The Lure of the Underworld VIII. Mingling in High Society IX. Out, but an Outcast X. Hitting the Road XI. Back to My Pals XII. The House of "Corruption" XIII.
