Customer Review

on 18 July 2011
I've greatly enjoyed this book, but it is a lot of information to take in on a narrow topic so I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone with a merely passing interest. Nonetheless for those who are interested it has been exhaustively researched and is well-written so as to draw the reader in. While I'm not sure I agree with Cruickshank's thesis that Georgian London was largely built on the proceeds of the sex trade, he convincingly demonstrates that it had a bigger impact on this fair (or not so fair?) city than I would ever have imagined. In fact the sheer scale and economic significance of the Georgian sex industry is the key point I have taken away from this book, as it is a truely unnoticed aspect of London and the UK's socio-economic history.
