Book Description:

A thrilling expose and anthropological review of London's criminal and marginalized underbelly in the early twentieth century.

From the Back Cover:

'The villains and the wanderers of London are always present, moving at the edge of things, the limits of visibility. Men of large sympathy, drawn as much to write as to act, are their only witnesses. Their celebrants.' Iain Sinclair Thomas Holmes' masterpiece of early-twentieth century social journalism is a quirky, engaging and witty look at London's criminal and social underworld of 1912. Holmes investigates the seedy intentions of the pickpockets, prostitutes, prisoners, drunks and destitutes that comprise the capital's criminal element. A reflective and progressive theme runs through this work, as the author considers the serious social problems faced by women, the disabled and the unemployed. Both a thrilling expose and a considered anthropological review, London's Underworld is driven by the author's conflicting feelings of admiration for the enduring resilience of the underclass and concern for their vulnerable position on the edge of the abyss.
