This review is from: Newgate: London's Prototype of Hell (Paperback)
A previous reviewer compared the book unfavourably against Bedlam: London and Its Mad but I prefered this book to the other. Bedlam seemed dry in its writing style. This book might be a tad simplistic but it is informative. The anecdotes are interesting and the isolated page summaries of personalities were useful.
