Review:

"Hustlers, Beats, and Others is a lively and original editorial on a variety of sociological issues."

Kai T. Erikson, American Sociological Review

"It would be unfortunate if Polsky's provocative insights, criticisms, and suggestions to social scientists regarding their postulates and research methods were to be ignored."

Joseph Botkin, Annals of the American Society of Political and Social Science

"It is clear that Polsky's treatise on poolroom culture and the lore and organization of hustling is a labor of longtime love, born of early first-hand experience as an aficionado and furthered by subsequent research interest."

Edwin M. Lemert, American Journal of Sociology

"Polsky's postulates on field research with criminals are extremely significant in terms of theory and methodology . . . . Polsky's book contains original and provocative material, and in content, method, and theory challenges the views of many "eminent" researchers in deviant and criminal behavior . . . . This book marks a brilliant contribution to the field of deviant behavior and is far superior to most of the current or past publications in this area."

Julian Roebuck, The Journal of Criminal Law, Criminology, and Poltiical Science
