The author describes London's East End at a time of mass immigration from Eastern Europe to the shabby tenements of Stepney and Whitechapel. This was the birthplace of the Jewish socialist and libertarian movement. The book brings alive a forgotten and fascinating part of London history, and is essential reading for anyone interested in Victorian and Edwardian London, social and labour history and migrant history in this country.
