Adin presents readers with an account of a 1954 crime spree perpetrated by four middle-class teenagers, and the national attention it garnered the perpetrators and the ongoing nationwide juvenile delinquency problem of the nineteen-fifties. In nine chapters, the author covers the crimes, the members of the gang, the national and local environment in which the crimes were committed, the confessions, the trial, the national media fallout, and a variety of other related subjects. Mariah Adin is a Fullbright Scholar, independent historian, and author. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
