Jack London (au); Jack Lindsay (in). American author Jack London wrote this study of the economic degradation of the poor after posing as an American sailor stranded in the East End of London during 1902 -- sleeping in doss houses, living with the destitute & starving. As well as being a literary masterpiece, this book stands as a major sociological study. While other American writers were blindly celebrating the glories of the British Empire at its peak, Jack London was asking why such misery was to be found in the heart of a capital city of immense wealth. Yet this is a work of reportage rather than propaganda. Although occasionally giving vent to his indignation, Jack London lets his observations speak for themselves.
