Review Text: 

Whitechapel Noise is a unique account of Yiddish popular culture in the East End of London that ranges widely between politics, Judaism, and sexuality. Always open to the nuances of the 400 musical lyrics under consideration, this gem of a book is a pioneering account of a fascinating cultural history.
