The main method of the author in describing crime in America is to relate criminal cases, cite statistics, and to generally show the economic and social factors of this country that deny persons access to legitimate opportunities. The illegitimate opportunities that exist for potential criminals are unlimited and admittance to the criminal class demonstrates the belief in another road to win social rewards-money and prestige by sheer physical exertion and stamina.
