More About This Title East End Gangland


The East End crimeworld 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, through the 1960s when the Kray Twins held the reins of the underworld, to the present and the changing structure of crimes and criminal gangs. The book 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 organized prostitution throughout the century to the major drug dealers of today.
