Street Corner Society is one of a handful of works that can justifiably be called classics of sociological research. William Foote Whyte's account of the Italian American slum he called "e;Cornerville"e;-Boston's North End-has been the model for urban ethnography for fifty years.By mapping the intricate social worlds of street gangs and "e;corner boys,"e; Whyte was among the first to demonstrate that a poor community need not be socially disorganized. His writing set a standard for vivid portrayals of real people in real situations. And his frank discussion of his methodology-participant observation-has served as an essential casebook in field research for generations of students and scholars.This fiftieth anniversary edition includes a new preface and revisions to the methodological appendix. In a new section on the book's legacy, Whyte responds to recent challenges to the validity, interpretation, and uses of his data. "e;The Whyte Impact on the Underdog,"e; the moving statement by a gang leader who became the author's first research assistant, is preserved."e;Street Corner Society broke new ground and set a standard for field research in American cities that remains a source of intellectual challenge."e;-Robert Washington, Reviews in Anthropology
