When Ladies Go A-Thieving: Middle-Class Shoplifters in the Victorian Department Store
Elaine S. Abelson (au). An intelligent & intriguing probe into the social history of shoplifting in America &, tangentially, Europe. More than a history of social change & shoplifting, this is a study of consumer culture & technological change, class privilege & gender roles in transition, female criminality & social control. The book will appeal to students of developments & transmutation of gender stereotypes of modern capitalist society, as well as those who ponder the meaning of the glittering & far-flung shopping malls of our own times. Abelsonís trenchant comments also illuminate the history of labeling in deviance & its interconnections with social & economic interests. Allan Nevins Prize, Soc. of Amer. Historians.
