Gifford provides a hard-boiled investigation of hundreds of pulpy paperbacks written by Chester Himes, Donald Goines, and Iceberg Slim (aka Robert Beck), among many others. He draws from an impressive array of archival materials to provide a first-of-its-kind literary and cultural history of this distinctive genre, evaluating the artistic and symbolic representations of pimps, sex-workers, drug dealers, and political revolutionaries in African American crime literature.
