The hobo : the sociology of the homeless man by Nels Anderson( Book )

73 editions published between 1923 and 2016 in English and Finnish and held by 1,343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is an account, written with insight and sympathy, of the life of the hobo, life in 'Hobohemia,' a frontier that was already beginning to vanish when this study originally appeared in 1923. The author, drawing from his own experiences as a hobo, pictures life in the 'main stem' of Halsted and State Streets in Chicago. Here are the customs and class distinctions, language, songs, moral and intellectual life of this body of men who, for widely varying reasons, chose the migratory life. A new introduction by the author places the hobo in historical perspective and explains his disappearance from the American scene"--Page 4 of cover

La 4e de couv. indique : "Paru en 1923, Le Hobo de Nels Anderson est l'une des plus célèbres enquêtes d'ethnologie urbaine qui firent la réputation de l'École de Chicago dans l'entre-deux-guerres.Ouvriers migrants qui se déplaçaient de Chicago vers l'Ouest pour suivre les chantiers, les hobos représentent au tournant du XXe siècle toute une époque de la classe ouvrière américaine.Anderson, lui-même hobo, livre une description précise, vivante et sans misérabilisme de cette vie de débrouille, où chacun use de combines pour faire face aux difficultés. Il décline l'éventail des types de marginalité que produit la pauvreté dans la grande ville. En mêlant observation directe, discussions informelles, biographies et poèmes, il saisit de l'intérieur les modes de vie, l'organisation sociale et les formes de culture de ces nomades"
