REVIEWS
 
38. Montague Druitt: Portrait of a Contender; Jack the Ripper: 150 Suspects and more!

COVER ILLUSTRATION: Francis Tumblety and The American Civil War ©Adam Wood

QUOTE OF THE MONTH: ‘The suggestion that the four are moderate compared with Mr Arafat, is to suggest that the Boston Strangler was moderate compared with Jack the Ripper.’ Ambassador Yoram Ettinger arguing that legitimizing top leaders of the Palestine Authority - Yasser Arafat’s successors - ‘constitutes a victory of wishful thinking over moral clarity.’
