Buchbeschreibung Robson Books, 2004. Hardcover / Hardback. Buchzustand: Very Good. Zustand des Schutzumschlags: Fine. 2nd edition. Hardback. SIGNED. In the autumn of 1888 a series of prostitute murders in London's poverty-ridden East End caused a sensation around the world. The killer was never caught, perhaps never identified, but became known to posterity by the chilling nickname 'Jack the Ripper'. This book is the story of those murders, free of theories and speculation, by one of the world's most respected authorities on the subject. Paul's fascinatingly detailed history makes extensive use of contemporary sources to bring the reader as close as possible to the times of the crimes. The murders, police investigation and reaction of the press and the people are reconstructed chonologically, and what is known of the lives of the tragic victims is fully discussed. The crimes' social background is examined in some detail, as are the reactions of ordinary people, the growing terror, what was happening on the streets, the pressures on the police and the political crisis the crimes nearly caused. Sticking to facts and avoiding speculation and theorising, Paul takes a coolly objective look at leading police suspects, providing the reader with a meticulous analysis of what is known or can be deduced about Tumbelty, Druitt, Ostrog and particularly Kosminski, thought to be the Ripper by the head of the CID at the time. The earlier edition of this book, published in the 1980s, was regarded as THE book on the subject, a primary resource for anyone interested in the Ripper mystery as well as students studying the Ripper as part of their course syllabus. This greatly expanded and completely revised edition builds on that earlier book. It is thoroughly up-to-date with a great deal of new information, and includes assessments of 'popular' theories such as the Royal conspiracy, the so-called Maybrick diary, and the theory advanced by Patricial Cornwell in 'Portrait of a Killer'. The author's extensive knowledge of the period and understanding of the crimes has produced one of the best, most insightful and most complete accounts. He has produced a genuine history of one of Britain's most gruesome series of murders. Illus., Notes and References, Bibliog. and Index. 550pp. large 8vo. h/back. The lower r/hand corners of a large section of the book's pages, plus the book cover, have been bumped at some point, causing a creasing effect, rather like a ripple, but is only about half-an-inch across size-wise. With tipped-in label SIGNED BY PAUL BEGG. Vg+ in Nr. F. dw. A fairly heavy book which will require additional postage. signed by author. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 16972
