Crying the News

A History of America's Newsboys

Vincent DiGirolamo

  • Shows how newspaper sellers and carriers fared in a variety of paid and unpaid labor systems, from slavery, indentured servitude, family labor, and the padrone system to wage work, piece work, petty commerce, and corporate capitalism
  • Reveals how laws regulating child street labor were products of children's collective action as much as the efforts of reformers
  • Illuminates the contested process by which artists, novelists, photographers, advertisers and others transformed capitalism's most woeful victims into its chief symbolic proponents
