Casebook Review:

Only a decade and a half after the Ripper murders, American writer Jack London spent several weeks in East London posing as a casual laborer. He wrote of his experiences in People of the Abyss, a shocking exposť of the living conditions for the people of London's East End. Highly recommended.
