People of the Abyss

A profound and moving piece of investigative journalism, Jack Londons 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 poor, 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 Britains capital. His clear-eyed reflections on the iniquities of class are a shaming testament to the persistence of social inequality in modern Britain.
