Softcover. Introduction by Robin Odell. 'Jack the Ripper was the slayer of at least five female victims in London's East End, but his legacy left many more victi8ms in its wake than he could have ever imagined. From the Royal Family and the British Government to the London Police and minority groups, the list of 'other' victims that were created as a direct result of the Jack the Ripper murders goes on and on. Following the success of their first book, the authors from The Whitechapel Society have compiled this ultimate force in Ripper research, in which each group is looked at in detail. The authors are veteran Ripper chroniclers, familiar with the highways and byways of the Ripper road map. They share the principle that in all the plethora of commentaries about the Whitechapel Murderer, there are many categories of victim apart from the five women slain in the streets in the autumn of 1888. The Whitechapel Society is London's premier society for the study of Jack the Ripper and related Victorian/Edwardian social history. The society hosts talks, presentations, guided walks and book launches, and their in-house magazine remains the largest subscribed hard-copy magazine in Ripperology.' Contributors include : Frogg Moody, Clare Smith, Yasha Beresiner, Sue Parry, Mickey Mayhew, Andrew O'Day, Alfred Beadle, Jacqueline Murphy, George Fleming and Ted Ball. Each chapter includes a Bibliog. and/or Notes. Illus. 95pp. trade size softcover. With tipped-in labels SIGNED BY ROBIN ODELL AND SUE PARRY. Vg+
