Paperback. The term 'juvenile delinquency' scarcely describes the world-wide malaise of youth, which beset the 1950s and which - although Teddy Boys are now period pieces - continued into the 1960s. What caused this rebellion of youth in a Welfare State? The author's survey is in the tradition of George Orwell. He conjures up a world of sharp clothes, gang life, coffee-bars, motor-bikes, juke-boxes, pin tables, cafes, and cinemas, and adroitly related the toe-tapping young non-conformers to the conditions of an affluent society which for them, was little better than a dead end. The best study of a grave post-war phenomenon in Britain. With Index. 264pp. p/back. with a small beverage stain to the lower edges of the first 30pp., lightly browned edges. Vg. with minimal creasing to covers.
