The Lost Generation: A Portrait of American Youth Today
by Davis, Maxine
New York: The Macmillan Company. Good. 1936. First Edition. Hardcover. (no dust jacket) [decent reading/reference copy, small chunk of cloth missing at top of spine, moderate external soiling, darkening to spine cloth, one-time owner's name and date on front pastedown; front hinge a little tender, but not split or separated]. The author's preface states: "This book is a portrayal of a condition which demands both an immediate remedy and a long-range program, for it deals with that most perishable of all commodities: youth. ... I have endeavored to show the characteristics, the opportunities, the handicaps, the needs, and our chance to help the boys and girls in this country who face the most difficult situation which has ever confronted youth in the history of this nation. ... This volume makes no pretense of scientifically based authority. It is the work of a journalist: the result of observation, analysis, eclecticism, personal opinion, and personal conclusion. For it, I gathered the material as any reporter covers a story: I went out over the country and collected it, adding to my findings the studies and research of some years of journalistic writing in this field." .
