Using the elastic term "delinquency" as their canvas, these parties painted conflicting portraits of modernizing America. They told stories about the emergence of the state, the gendered nature of professionalism, the dangers (and promise) of consumer culture, and the possibility of pluralism.
Combining rigorous research with passionate writing, To Become Good, Self-Supporting Women provides a unique examination of adolescence, sex, delinquency, race, and gender.
