Abstract: »Reveals how the detective novels by author Caroline Slade (1886-1975) that focus on child prostitution are actually scathing commentaries on the failure of the social welfare system to protect children from poverty and physical abuse in the 1930's and 1940's.« (Source: America: History and Life)
