HOW TO KEEP OUT OF JAIL

The law is the final reality in our society."" Among the final realities that Dr. Bromberg presents to help explode general and optimistic impressions about the consequences of delinquent behavior are these: the ""high spirits"" plea is not be recognized by the courts, which are not inclined to patience with any ""boys will be boys"" arguments; ignorance of a law broken is not considered an excuse; manliness is not achieved through feats of group destruction but through private self-control. The author is a prominent psychiatrist and his adult book, Crime and the Mind, is a popular general reference. Here, he keeps the psychological principles simply worded, backing the points made with typical case histories. He defines the differences between felonies, misdemeanors, violations, etc., and discusses the employment potential of young people with jail records. This seems like a good book for starting off discussions and its not nonsense statements of the penalties should prove sobering to the age group most prone to take wild risks. Report complete in these pages.
