279 indexed pages including b/w illustrations. This work is a complete history of the deprivation and treatment of children of laboring classes in Great Britain during early 20th century. Hooliganism, teenage gangs, vandalism, juvenile crime, classroom anarchy - are these the products of our present society or do they have a past? According to Stephen Humphries, the rebellion of working-class children and youth at school, at work and in the street has a long history. Using oral evidence from taped archives, he challenges the established view that rebellious behaviour was due to indiscipline rather than intolerable social and economic pressures. The recollections of working-class people, rarely if ever-heard in conventional histories, provide an authentic and often moving account of how working-class children coped with a harsh and oppressive world. Stephen Humphries, formerly Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Essex, is now a writer and broadcaster with a special interest in social history and oral tradition. Ex-library markings/attachments or remnants of and covered in adhesive plastic.
