Anyone new to the subject of Jack The Ripper might spend countless hours going over a near endless list of theories on this perplexing case. Most describe a killer's blind rampage – like any of a spate of serial murders he, the modern prototype, was to usher in. 
This study is different. It proposes that conditions on the ground in Victorian East London were unique. Jack The Ripper was not simply a maniac, or even, just a maniac on a mission. He was the twisted expression of a moment in time and place. Delving into the socio-political landscape that helped distinguish the East End in the late 1880s, journalist Stephen Senise looks at the murderous campaign left by one angry madman bent on broadcasting an ugly message. 
That his crimes came to a halt as they did, also provides a window into Jack The Ripper's intrinsic connection to the setting of the tale, with new archival information presented showing how he got away. Based on Victorian era records and media reports, this work offers fresh insights, a deeper understanding of events and a novel explanation for the world's most infamous murder spree.

When freelance writer Stephen Senise isn't chasing the ponies he is a keen amateur psephologist. His political analysis has featured in capital city dailies across Australia, the Brisbane Institute's 'The Brisbane Line', and on ABC radio. He has worked as a researcher and media advisor for members of parliament in Sydney and Canberra...
