Jack the Ripper
Availability: In stock
Jack the Ripper is an invaluable survey of crimes that have haunted the world's imagination since his murderous reign drew to a close in 1888.
Exploring the social context of the crimes, it includes facsimiles of documents such as police reports, letters purporting to be from Jack the Ripper, and newspaper clippings. Putting these directly into the hands of readers enables them to become detectives-sifting through the evidence and clearing away the mess of complex and contradictory theories, to assess all the evidence and conclusions gathered so far.
