The East End has always held a malign fascination for the general public. In this book James Morton looks at this phenomenon from the days of the unsolved murders committed by Jack the Ripper to the 1960s when the Kray Twins held the reins of the Underworld, to the present and how the structure of crimes and criminal gangs has changed. EAST END GANGLAND looks not only at the Twins but also at the influx of immigrant gangs of the 1900s, the powerful Chinese drug dealers of the 1920s, the racecourse gangs, the men who ran crime on the docks, and organised prostitution throughout the century to the major drug dealers of today.

ÿFor the first five years of my life I was brought up by someone my mother happened to meet on the beach. ?I?m going back to Nigeria next week to re-join my husband,? she mentioned to this woman, ?but I?ve got a baby of six months and I don?t know what to do with her??? Delia Despair, as she is now known to her many blog fans, survived a turbulent if privileged childhood as the daughter of a globe-trotting diplomat and was blessed (or cursed) with a confusion of mummies and a string of convents and smart schools before attending a Swiss business school (pursued by suitors of several nationalities) and managing to become an extremely junior journalist on the Daily Telegraph. After that came a nightmare experience with a tyrannical millionairess boss, followed by encounters with terrorists in Cyprus and finally, a loving marriage to a man dismissed by her parents as beneath her. Delia has penned a fascinating, warm and very funny memoir, replete with encounters with the great and good (and some not so good), from Somerset Maugham, Noel Coward and John Gielgud to Fanny Cradock.
