Book Details

Page count: 408 pages

File size: 1.1 MB

Protection: DRM

Language: English

In 1888 the Whitechapel area of London was the scene of some of the most brutal murders ever recorded in history – and yet the case of Jack the Ripper remains unsolved. Steering clear of wild conspiracy theories, and spurious attempts to advance new theories about the identity of the culprit, Paul Begg instead provides the facts behind one of the most infamous and grisly episodes of the Victorian era.

 The book is a social history of Victorian East London as it is about the murders themselves. Begg argues that the case excited such interest precisely because of the notoriety of the East End at the time. Chronological coverage includes detailed accounts of the lives of each of the victims and an examination of the police investigation.
