Review

'A well thought out, brilliantly told, historically accurate and definitive work...Simply the best of its kind.'
-- United We Stand

'An absorbing read.' (Family History Monthly) -- FAMILY HISTORY MONTHLY

'An important addition to the growing library on pre-Fifties youth culture.'
-- Jon Savage in THE DAILY TELEGRAPH

'An important addition to the growing library on pre-fifties youth culture.' (The Daily Telegraph) -- THE DAILY TELEGRAPH

'Andrew Davies evokes the energy and excitement of gang life, their pride, their loyalty to each other, their love of fighting and their brutal excesses.' -- HISTORY TODAY

'Fascinating.' (Salford Advertiser)
-- SALFORD ADVERTISER

'If ever a book was captured by the image on its front cover then this is it.' (History Today) -- HISTORY TODAY

'Lively, well-researched...A masterly job.'(BBC History Magazine) -- BBC HISTORY MAGAZINE

'Rampant knife crime. Warring yobs clad in their own threatening uniform. And utterly powerless police. No, not 2009, but a Victorian England terrorised by teenage gangs even more savage than today's. -- DAILY MAIL

'With all the skill of a novelist, Davies weaves together the fruits of meticulous research to recreate the Manchester of the late 19th century in all its appalling fascination. An absorbing read and a must for anyone who wants to understand life in the classic slum.' -- FAMILY HISTORY MONTHLY --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
