Notes

First edition, first printing. Signed by the photographer on the title page. This is the first publication of the complete set of a series of photographs taken during the summer of 1959 by Magnum photographer Bruce Davidson. The photographs follow "The Jokers", one of the many youth gangs in Brooklyn at a time when there were "an estimated thousand gang members in New York City". The photographs are accompanied by a short text by the photographer and a longer interview with one of the former gang members.
