Monographs and Theoretical Studies in Sociology and Anthropology in Honour of Nels Anderson was published between 1972 and 1989. Nels Anderson was a pioneer in the study of the homeless. In the early 1920s Anderson combined his own experience "on the bummery," with his keen sociological insight to give voice to a largely ignored underclass. He remains an extraordinary and underrated figure in the history of American sociology.
On Hobos and Homelessness includes Anderson's rich and vibrant ethnographic work of a world of homeless men.
The series was integrated in
International Studies in Sociology and Social-Anthropology in 1990.
