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 Andersons rich and vibrant ethnographic work of a world of homeless men.

He conducted his study on Madison street in Chicago, and we come to intimately know this portion of the 1920s hobo underworld—the harshness of vagrant life and the adventures of young hobos who come to the big city. This selection also includes Andersons later work on the juvenile and the tramp, the unattached migrant, and the family. Like John Steinbecks Depression-era observations, Andersons writings express the memory of those who do not seem entitled to have memory, whose lives were expressed in temporary labor.
