8vo. 244pp. Light edgewear and toning of end pages. Price clipped dust jacket has sunned spine and chipping along bottom front and spine edges, some closed tears and a 2" crease mark at top front. Worn but not tattered. Sex crimes, drugs, kleptomania, truancy and rape. This book has it all! The author examines the deteriorating moral fiber through case histories, speculates about various causes and lays out a program for prevention and treatment. Published at a time when pornography was masqueraded as scientific study and straight-up hygiene books were wrapped in scintillating covers, this pretty much rides the line.* * * [Please note: additional postage fees may be required for oversized and/or international orders to be shipped.].
