Wow this book was just what I needed. I am researching my ancestors who lived in East London around the time this book details. It really has vivid descriptions of the time and place.

I have been interested in the history of England and the East End of London that developed around the ports and busy commerce of the Thames river. Overpopulation and scarcity of jobs created a distressed environment for the people of the East End. Jack London actually dressed in poor mans clothes and went to live among them. One can read about the history and facts of these people but Jack London wrote from personal experience as he walked the streets of the East End. The spirit and characteristics of the Cockney people is intriguing, as they have their own lingo and sense of community. They posses a determined strength in such adverse, difficult conditions. Reading about the dire conditions of the East End has made me aware of poverty and deprivation that exists still today. I believe we all need to be more aware of the struggles of those around us, walking in the shoes of those who face hardship and difficult times.

I have a few books that I find draw me back for another "read"; this is one of them. I read it (at least) every 2 years.

One of the reasons I love Jack London's writings is the way he can bring a time/place to life; he does it wonderfully in this book. He goes undercover as an American living on the streets of London's East End and relates his experiences - even has a bit on Queen Victoria's jubilee!

Also, included are some snapshots taken at the time and add to the impact of the story. (Not nearly enough in my view so I found myself buying the illustrated version, as well... )

Due to how many times I read this book, needed it in hardback; you may find yourself in the same predicament.

This is a chilling reminder of history. and we are repeating it today as the bankers and corporate elite destroy the US middle class.
