An Oral History of Working-Class Childood and Youth 1889 - 1939

In this fascinating book, Stephen Humphries examines all aspects of
childhood delinquency, from hooliganism, teenage gangs and
vandalism to juvenile crime and classroom anarchy. He shows that
far from being simply the product of contemporary society, the
rebellion of under-privileged children and youth has a long and
compelling history. By drawing on oral testimonies and forgotten
documentary accounts, the author evokes a vivid picture of young
people at war with adults in the days when children were to be
"seen and not heard". The recollections of working-class people,
rarely if ever heard in conventional histories, provide an
authentic and often moving account of how working-class children
coped with an often harsh and oppressive world.

Hooligans and Rebels will be welcomed by all those
interested in oral history, and the history of youth in modern
British society.
