The Ripper File
Melvin Harris
W. H. Allen and Co. Plc., 1989

Casebook Review:

Another wonderfully-produced book by Melvin Harris. "The Ripper File" reprints numerous contemporary reports, supplemented with Harris's insightful commentary. Touches upon the D'Onston theory, but focuses mainly on the facts of the case. Recommended.
