Adolescent Boys of East London

£14.99

Product description

Adolescent Boys of East London - Peter Wilmott
Institute of Community Studies. Published by Routleddge & Kegan Paul, 1966, first edition. pp 224.

Blue and white jacket with 3cm tear to spine top and 1cm tear to front top. Jacket is surprisingly strong and intact, as though it does not want to come off. Sunning to spine.

Blue cloth boards with gilt titles to spine. Signed by author "With best wishes" on endpaper.
Block is in excellent condition with no internal marks. Plenty of testimonials and a few charts. The book has a springy feel and tries to close itself over. This suggests some exposure to damp at some time in its life. However, the pages are all bright and clear and there is no damp staining.
Overall very good.

A sociological study of boys growing up in East London, particularly Bethnal Green, in the mid sixties. A sample of 246 boys aged 14-20 were interviewed and the outcome is a vivid account which is rather different from some views.

After you have bought your item, our team of volunteers package and dispatch it from the Shop straight to you or your chosen recipient.

Oxfam Bookshop Market Harborough

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller. Oxfam bookshops offer a wider selection of books than most shops, from modern fiction and leisure interest to more specialist subjects, classics, and rare or collectable books. We also stock an attractive range of greetings cards and a good selection of stationery. Come and browse!

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
