The Tramp in America

Tim Cresswell (Author)
Describes the intervention of the tramp as a social type in the United States between 1869 and 1939. Tim Cresswell considers the ways in which the figure of the tramp was imagined, written and spoken about, and how by World War II it was being reclassified, renamed and rendered invisible.
