Whitechapel Noise

Review Text: 

Vivi Lachs has written an accomplished and sophisticated book. Drawing on a largely neglected store of Anglo-Yiddish songs and poems, Lachs makes a compelling argument for the value of Yiddish popular culture as a historical source for understanding the lives and mental worlds of Jewish immigrants in London at the turn of the twentieth century.
