In writing a thesis dealing with such an amazingly wide subject as modern youth one is staggered by the quantities of material that one must read. It is true that most of the research work concerning the young American is propaganda of one kind of another: someone must prove that youth is degenerate; or someone must prove that youth is god-like. Between these two extremes much has been written in an attempt to prove that youth is simply youth--little or no different from the youth of any other age. It is all very illuminating and it is all a bit maddening. Why, one is tempted, should youth be judged? Is anything gained by a clinical experimentation of modern boys and girls? If so, what?

Hence this thesis.
