London’s East End Then & Now is a superb collection photographs, compiled by photographer and successful author Steve Lewis. Scenes of yesteryear are contrasted with modern colour views to show what has been lost and what remains. This book offers an insight into people’s daily lives and living conditions in the East End, and the nature of the photographs and Steve Lewis’s informative captions show the sometimes drastic changes which have taken place in the name of progress, not least to accommodate the 2012 Olympic Games. Drawing on detailed local knowledge of the community (through interviewing the subjects of the photographs, old and new) and illustrated with a wealth of fascinating images, this book recalls what has changed in the East End in terms of buildings, traditions and ways of life.

"Ripper Notes: The Legend Continues" looks at the enduring mystery of the Jack the Ripper murders with essays covering the myths from the past that still survive today as well as the way modern enthusiasts keep the case alive. Wolf Vanderlinden starts things off with an in-depth look at Carl Feigenbaum, a convicted murderer whose own lawyer thought he was Jack the Ripper. Dan Norder tackles the concept of copycat killings and uncovers evidence that the Whitechapel murderer changed his methods to live up to his own legend. John Bennett examines top hats, black bags and other icons of the Jack the Ripper myth. Craig Hansen criticizes unrealistic attempts to romanticize the life of Ripper victim Mary Jane Kelly. Andrew Spallek investigates rail service between Blackheath and London to see if suspect Montague J. Druitt can be placed in the East End around the times of the murders. Jonathan Menges dissects recent claims that DNA has proven Dr. Hawley Crippen innocent of the death of his wife. Bernard Brown examines the Thomas Street Murder of 1894. In addition to the regular news briefs and book reviews, there is also detailed coverage of the 2007 Ripper conference, the Trial of James Maybrick and Frogg Moody's Ripper-themed rock opera. Profusely illustrated with rarely-seen images, Ripper Notes is a nonfiction anthology series covering all aspects of the Jack the Ripper case and other murders of Victorian era.

Paul Newland's illuminating study explores the ways in which London's East End has been constituted in a wide variety of texts – films, novels, poetry, television shows, newspapers and journals. Newland argues that an idea or image of the East End, which developed during the late nineteenth century, continues to function in the twenty-first century as an imaginative space in which continuing anxieties continue to be worked through concerning material progress and modernity, rationality and irrationality, ethnicity and 'Otherness', class and its related systems of behaviour.The Cultural Construction of London's East End offers detailed examinations of the ways in which the East End has been constructed in a range of texts including BBC Television'sEastEnders, Monica Ali's Brick Lane, Walter Besant's All Sorts and Conditions of Men, Thomas Burke'sLimehouse Nights, Peter Ackroyd's Hawksmoor, films such as Piccadilly, Sparrows Can't Sing, The Long Good Friday, From Hell, The Elephant Man, and Spider, and in the work of Iain Sinclair.

The East End

The East End as an idea is known to every Londoner, and to many others, though its boundaries are vague. Alan Palmer's historical overview of the area (first published in 1989 and revised in 2000) takes its extent to be the traditional limits of Hackney and Tower Hamlets, Hoxton and Shoreditch, the docklands and their overflow into West Ham and East Ham. And at the heart of the East End lies Spitalfields, home to a transient, often radical and hard-working population. Though it is often seen as London's centre of industry and poverty, in comparison to the well-to-do West End, the East End has always been a diverse place: in the seventeenth century, Hackney was a pleasant country retreat; Stepney and the docklands a bustling world of sailors and merchants. The book traces the development of the area from these roots, through the nineteenth century - when the East End became notorious as the home of radicals, exiled revolutionaries and the very poor, its crowded streets the scene of murder, riot and cholera -to the bombing of the first and second world war; and the subsequent decline and regeneration of the twentieth century.

Combining commercial success with philanthropy and social activism, ‘Quakernomics’ offers a compelling model for corporate social responsibility in the modern world. Mike King explores the ethical capitalism of Quaker enterprises from the eighteenth to the twentieth centuries, testing this theory against those of prominent economists. With a foreword by Sir Adrian Cadbury, this book proves that the Quaker practice of ‘total capitalism’ is not a historically remote nicety but an immediately relevant guide for today’s global economy.

London Jewry And London Politics 1889 1986

Up to the founding of the London County Council in 1889, the Jewish role in municipal politics was marginal. However, with the influx of Jewish refugees from Eastern Europe, an anti-alien agitation developed in which London politicians (including some Jews) participated. During World War I, hostility to foreign-born Jews increased, especially to Russian Jews reluctant to fight for an ally of Tsarist Russia. During the 1920s the Conservative LCC discriminated against foreign-born Jews (even when naturalized) in housing, education, and employment. As a result, Jews moved towards Labour. Jewish official bodies were reluctant to protest openly or exploit their electoral strength, especially when antisemitism increased with the arrival of refugees from Nazi Germany and with the rise of fascism. With the drift to the suburbs after 1945 and support for the Conservative Party, Jews were inactive in the new Greater London Council and were thus taken by surprise when a radical anti-Zionist Labour group, associated with anti-Jewish militant Black politics, took over the GLC in 1981. The clash between them ended only when the government abolished the GLC.
