About this Item

Photo illustrated wraps. 45 pp. With illustrations by Fred G. Cooper. A pamphlet issued by the American Council on Education and transferred to the University of Chicago Press. Geared toward school classes, adult-education and workers' groups. This work seeks to explain the causes of crime, as well as means of prevention, discussing gangs, family dynamics, poverty, lack of work, pool halls (as a source of corruption), etc. Also cited is the Bolshevo used by the Soviet Union, a colony of criminals (not convicted of crimes against the state) set up outside Moscow to employ and reform them. The pamphlet recalls the positive effects of the community, including benefits in the community. The Bolshevo community was eventually referred to as the Gulag by the mid 1930's, after government reorganizations (Jakobson, Origins of the Gulag). VERY GOOD condition. Minor fading, rubbing and edgewear. Small crease at the lower front corner. Minor soiling. Interior clean and solid. Bookseller Inventory # 004805
