414 pp, 9 1/2" H. B&w photographs, maps. "London's Soho district underwent a spectacular trans-formation between the late Victorian era and the end of the Second World War: its old buildings and dark streets infamous for sex, crime, political disloyalty and immigrants became a center of culinary and cultural tourism servicing patrons of nearby shops and theaters. Treating Soho as exceptional, but also representative of London's urban transformation, (the author) shows how the area's foreignness and porousness were key to the explosion of culture. In restaurants, street markets and shady night clubs, the protagonists include traders, waiting staff, undercover police, chorus girls, jazz musicians and entrepreneurs. She draws on a vast and unusual range of sources to stitch together a patchwork quilt of vivid stories and unforgettable characters, revealing how Soho became a showcase for a new cosmopolitan identity." Contents: Introduction; Cosmopolitan Soho; Battle of the Empire; The "Vision of Salome"; The Italian Restaurant; A Jewish Night Out; The Shady Nightclub; Windmill Theatre; Epilogue. Very minor wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling - mainly at top edge.
