A profound and moving piece of investigative journalism, Jack London's study of the London underworld remains, a century after it was written, a timely tale of poverty and injustice.In 1902, Jack London purchased some second-hand clothes, rented a room in the East End, and set out to discover how the London poor lived. His research makes shocking reading. Moving through the slums as one of the po∨ eating, drinking and socialising with the underclass; queuing to get into a doss-house, London was scandalised and brutalised by the experience of living rough in Britain's capital. His clear-eyed reflections on the iniquities of class are a shaming testament to the persistence of social inequality in modern Britain.

display_description This antiquarian book contains an account of Jack London's time spent in the underworld of London in the late nineteenth-century. This thought-provoking and insightful account of life in London's underbelly highlights the chronic starvation and lack of shelter causing so much misery for so many city-dwellers. This text is recommended for those with an interest in nineteenth-century English life, and it is not to be missed by fans and collectors of London's seminal work. John Griffith "Jack" London (1876 - 1916) was an American writer and activist. Many antiquarian books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author.
