Casebook Review:

James Greenwood is considered one of the first "investigative journalists" of Victorian London's seedy underbelly. In this book he examines the seven "curses" of London - beggars, drunks, thieves, neglected children, prostitutes, gamblers and "wasters of charity." An insightful view of the dirtier side of London life.
