Criminal Women
Criminal Women: Famous London Cases | John J. Eddleston
3 posts | 1 read | 1 to read
TRUE CRIME. Women have sometimes been seen as less criminally inclined than men. But, as John Eddleston shows, London's history is crowded with cases of women who broke the law. In vivid detail he reconstructs a series of dramatic, often harrowing cases in which women were involved and puts their acts in the context of their times. Taking episodes from the eighteenth century to near the present day, he looks at criminal women of all types, from all walks of life. The work of the London police, the courts and the prisons is an essential element in his study, and each chapter reveals much about how attitudes to crime and punishment have changed over the centuries. Fascinating portraits of these criminal women as individuals emerge from their stories - their cases come to life - as does the London in which they lived.

Second thankyou for the #bookmarkswap goes to @kaysworld1 - I love everything and will pass the book on when I am finished with it, as requested. Sorry about the blurry photo of the personalised one, and I've matched the Andrew Miller one with the book! 🤣🤣🤣

LibrarianRyan That circular one is so cool looking. 1w

I read this book in one sitting in the evening.
Most of the stories are pretty much the same so nothing new there.
My favourite parts were the details in how the crimes where committed they are fascinating.

Picked this up as a souvenir in #London and my 10-yr old daughter is reading it. Cautionary tale or instruction manual? I'm not sure. lol
