FIVE HUNDRED DELINQUENT WOMEN, with an Introduction by Dr. Roscoe Pound

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1934. First Edition. Hardcover. "A study of the background, correctional treatment and post-correctional behavior of 500 women sentenced by Massachusetts courts to the Reformatory for Women. The growth and contemporary status of the institution are described. The women showed early evidence of delinquent tendencies, with sexual misconduct the most common offense. The majority of them showed difficulties of adjustment to institutional life. Three fourths recidivated during the five-year period after expiration of sentence, though there was some upward trend with time; reformation seemed to depend on both an inner disposition toward improvement and favorable outer circumstances. Suggestions are made for prediction of recidivism and for treatment methods. An appendix presents the methods and forms used" (American Psychological Association). Octavo: xxiv, 539, x p.
