About the Author

John Eade is Reader in the Faculty of Social and Life Sciences, University of Surrey, Roehampton.


"[The] book is neatly divided into three tours of the focal districts of Central London [and] replete with lurid and dangerous sights and sounds ... I am lured by Eade's new manual to travel to London to sample samosas, discover provocative multicultural art and theater, and make nocturnal sorties for the hoisting of ales." * Urban Affairs

"[The author] writes clearly and with feeling ... [The information] is always plausible and well documented." * Contemporary Sociology

"... an excellent ... wonderful collection of essays." * Friends Newsletter, Max Kade Institute

"An impressive and scholarly analysis ... a profound, college-level retrospective and highly recommended." * The Midwest Book Review

"... a timely and innovative study. The scholarship is sound and the book is well organised and clearly written." * Les Back, Goldsmiths College
