Overview

In the autumn of 1888, London’s East End played host to a series of horrific murders that to this day have never been officially solved. The crimes of Jack the Ripper, as the killer became known, sent shockwaves through the civilized world and caused a scandal that struck right at the heart of the British establishment.

The murders brought a profound sense of fear and hopelessness to the streets of East London, but also shed a harsh light on the impoverished and dangerous conditions of the area, and raised numerous tensions to near boiling point. In Uncovering Jack the Ripper’s London, expert Richard Jones examines the wider context of the murders, examining the social conditions against which they were committed, the animosity between police and press, the instances of anti-Semitism, and the physical geography of the area.

Providing detailed analysis of the attacks and the investigation, he also considers

acts committed before and after the five recognized Ripper murders that could

also have been the work of the same person. Concise, compelling and insightful,

this book features several previously unpublished photographs and documents,

and is an absolute must for all Jack the Ripper enthusiasts.

    hmmm...

    While quite interesting and highly informative. Some of the pictures are almost to... gruesome. But i suppose if you're into that type of thing this is the book for you.
