Deviant Minorities

The Emergence of Deviant Minorities, Social Problems and Social change
Winslow
1972

Submitter: This book is giving the reader information on what are being classified as current Deviant Minorities. It mostly uses information from the previous decade. Since this book is from 1972, that decade would be the 1960’s. So, not too current for a small public library. There may be some value in this for a research or academic library. I am not convinced that the small public library, filled to the brim, is the best place to hold this. The creepy cover and scotch tape binding also add some additional thoughts!

Holly: An interesting book, for sure, but too old to be useful to most public library patrons. If it takes more time and tape to fix a book than the actual book is worth, it might be time to consider the recycle bin. Just sayin’.
