Rubenstein, Professor iuba Modern History, University of Wales, Aberystwyth England in the s was a society in transition, shedding the skin of Victorianism and moving towards a ‘The clearest, most accurate, and most up-to-date account of the Ripper roapruwacz, by one of Britain’s greatest and most respected experts on the “autumn of terror” in Victorian London. Rubenstein, Professor kompletnw Modern History, University of Wales, Aberystwyth England in the s was a society in transition, shedding the skin of Victorianism and moving towards a more modern age.
Promiscuity, moral decline, prostitution, unemployment, poverty, police inefficiency… all these things combined to create a feeling of uncertainty and fear.
The East End of London became the focus of that fear. Here lived the uneducated, poverty-ridden and morally destitute masses. When Jack the Ripper walked onto the streets of the East End he came to represent everything that was wrong with the area and with society as a whole. He was fear historoa a human form, an unknown lurker in the shadows who could cross boundaries and kill.
The Definitive History is not yet another attempt to identify the culprit. Instead, the book sets the murders in their historical context, examining in depth what East London roapruwacz like inhow it came to be that way, and how events led to kua of the most infamous and grisly episodes of the Victorian era.

E ben, sono in ferie. Giorno uno di ferie, libri due finiti. Il picco dell’interessante sono le foto al centro, nelle quali si ritraggono le vittime, vive o all’obitorio, e il luogo del ritrovamento, oltre al racconto minuto per minuto delle ultime ore di esistenza delle sventurate. Bello per chi ci volesse fare una tesi sopra. Aug 10, Ed Eleazer rated it really liked it. Begg’s history is, beyond a doubt, definitive. It covers not only the five canonical Ripper murders in detail, but also the two earlier ones —Emma Smith and Martha Tabram — with which the police Ripper file begins.
Begg does not follow all the murders in said file, which ends with the murder of Frances Coles inbut rather, ends with the vivisection of Mary Ann Kelly, then concludes with two chapters of speculation concerning the Ripper’s identity.
It is at this point that Begg’s book trans Begg’s history is, beyond a doubt, definitive. It is at this point that Begg’s book transcends the typical Ripper text, since Begg argues up front that this mystery will most likely never be solved. He investigates the theories extant at the time and subsequent theories of the Ripper’s identity, showing both the likelihood and unlikelihood of all suspects.
The text provides a solid historical description of the milieu in which the murders occurred drawing almost exclusively from primary sources. Chapters describing the East End particularly Whitechapel and Spitalfieldsthe politics of the era, prostitution in England in the nineteenth century, and the state of the media are well drawn and effective. This is the best book I have ever read on the Ripper —and I have read many.
Dec 28, Lightreads rated it liked it Shelves: This book distinguishes itself from the mass of Ripper scholarship by offering up a great deal more social and political context in an effort to explain why the Ripper story has endured and flowered in cultural consciousness. Begg is only marginally more informed on criminal behavior than the police of were. The book does offer some fascinating discussions of issues vital to the time period, like the upper-class British response to the white slave trade in young girls and the slow groundswell of socialist feeling.
The thesis is logical, and Begg does a pretty good job in describing the ripe hotbed of social unease in which the killings took place, though a bit less so regarding what it meant for the future of London’s poor. And the recitation of the recoverable facts from the police investigations has a wonderfully charming familiarity, reminding me that the basic principles of investigation have and will remain the same over the centuries.
A good overview of the issues free from a lot of the Ripper hysterics and elaborate theories. Sep 28, Paul Barton rated it liked it.
This account is by a notable researcher and author so you’d expect top notch. Sadly I can’t muster more than 3 stars because I found it boring. I’m very familiar with the Whitechapel Murders and own about 25 books on the subject.
This not a bad book by any means but it’s a tiring read.

Yes, the social and political history leading up to the late s is highly pertinent in setting the scene and in explaining the terrible conditions physical and psychological that many East Enders found themsleves living in. In a murder story we want the author to be incisive, to cut to the chase. Begg doesn’t do that but rambles on about the sorry relationship between government ministers and senior police officials. For a more concise yet highly readable account which still touches on the social and the political, look no further than Sugden.
Nov 23, Jo rated it liked it Shelves: A relaying of the Whitechapel murders but put into their historical and sociological context. Begg doesn’t rely on the sensationalism of other Ripper authors to convey the story. Interesting as a study of the late Victorians and not just the Ripper case. A refreshing look at the Jack the Ripper killings that sets them into context with the political and social events of the time, including the increasing awareness and objection to the plight of British girls sold into prostitution in Europe and the subsequent change in attitude to prostitution as a whole.
Between the chapters on the Ripper’s victims Begg describes the changing political scene of the time, the changes in attitudes towards the working classes as a whole and toward prostitution spe A refreshing look at the Jack the Ripper killings that sets them into context with the political and social events of the time, including the increasing awareness and objection to the plight of British girls sold into prostitution in Europe and the subsequent change in attitude to prostitution as a whole.
Between the chapters on the Ripper’s victims Begg describes the changing political scene of the time, the changes in attitudes towards the working classes as a whole and toward prostitution specifically and the failures of the police investigation into these and other crimes. Begg resists the temptation to discuss the many conspiracy theories concerning the identity of the Ripper instead focusing on the four main suspects of the time, providing evidence for and against and allowing the reader to make up their own mind which is somewhat refreshing when it comes to Jack.
He also discusses some of the more popular other suspects including Prince Albert Victor, and once again gives evidence for and against with the evidence against far exceeding the evidence for in most of these. The only thing missing from this work is a discussion on the pyschology of the killer, however had this been included it may have clouded the issue further, as these kind of pyschological profiles are only based on the information available, which in this case is conflicting at best.
Sep 10, Dorota rated it liked it. Well, it’s definitely most complete account of social, historical and cultural context in Jack the Ripper killings. And most scientific approach to the topic that really is impressive if you take into account how many people are still looking at Ripper’s case for sensationalism.
Mar 12, Julie rated it really liked it. The book was more than a re-telling of the gruesome events in the fall of He provided not only a great history of East London but also a detailed backdrop of London society good and bad at the time. The only thing that kept me from giving it 5 stars is that he’s pretty long-winded and almost too much so for my taste in certain parts. If I had not been visiting this particular area of London, I probably would have found it tedious to read.

All in all, a fascinating read for anyone interested in true crime, Victorian history or JTR in general. This, my second foray into the facts of Jack the Ripper, was not as readable kkba the first. But I think that was just it. I think the book strayed too far from the topic of the actual Ripper murders to hold someone’s attention who is just getting into the whole subject and wants examinations of the cold facts.
This book is grea This, my second foray into the facts of Jack the Ripper, was not as readable as the first. This book is great at examining a lot of social, political, and cultural aspects of the hidtoria period and the area of the Ripper murders, but bogs down the person just histroia for an examination of said murders.

Dec 27, Katherine Addison rated it really liked it Shelves: Begg can’t bring himself to let go of Sir Melville Macnaghten and especially not of Sir Robert Anderson, despite the fact that neither one of them stacks up well when you stop and think it over.
This book has some very good chapters on the social history surrounding the murders–although his chapters on the murders themselves aren’t as well-organized as Rumbelow’s Jack the Ripper: The Complete Casebook –and I give him credit for keeping the theories about the murderer out of the discussion of Begg can’t bring himself to let go of Sir Melville Macnaghten and especially not of Sir Robert Anderson, despite the fact that neither one of them ropruwacz up well when you stop and think it over.

I’m not sure what I was kompletnna, but I guess this delivers exactly what the title says it will: The author provides a history of London’s East End back to the Early Medieval era, contending that that piece of geography had always had a troubled history.
