On Brick Lane by Rachel Lichtenstein Book Summary:
Brick Lane today is a place of extremes – a street that's constantly reinventing itself. Blending history and reportage with personal testimony and urban myths, and interspersing these with maps and photography, On Brick Lane is a one-of-a-kind chronicle of one of London's most remarkable streets. Bringing to life the memories and realities of Brick Lane's many communities, Rachel Lichtenstein harnesses the voices of the famous, the infamous and the obscure, merging memoir, reportage, poetry, photography and local history. The result is as vibrant and fascinating as the neighbourhood it so movingly celebrates.
Salaam Brick Lane by Tarquin Hall Book Summary:
After ten years living abroad, Tarquin Hall wanted to return to his native London. Lured by his nostalgia for a leafy suburban childhood spent in south-west London, he returned with his Indian-born, American fiance in tow. But, priced out of the housing market, they found themselves living not in a townhouse, oozing Victorian charm, but in a squalid attic above a Bangladeshi sweatshop on London's Brick Lane. A grimy skylight provided the only window on their new world: a filthy, noisy street where drug dealers and prostitutes peddled their wares and tramps urinated on the pavements. At night, traffic lights lit up the ceiling and police sirens wailed into the early hours. Yet, as Hall got to know Brick Lane, he discovered beneath its unlovely surface an inner world where immigrants and asylum seekers struggle to better themselves and dream of escape. Salaam Brick Lane is a journey of discovery by an outsider in his own native city. It offers an explicit glimpse of the underbelly of London's most infamous quarter, the real-life world of Monica Ali's bestselling novel.
Once Upon a Time in Brick Lane by Paul Trevor Book Summary:
Vintage photographs taken in London's East End that are full of surprise and humanity. Paul Trevor is one of the unsung heroes of British photography and this is his unique collection of photos of one of the most iconic corners of London. Brick Lane is photographed more than almost any other street in the capital yet these elegant black and whites taken in the 70s, 80s and 90s capture something different: a now vanished era freedom and joy and full of grit. This is honest street photography in the very best tradition of Cartier-Bresson.

The Real Deal by James Caan Book Summary:
After dropping out of school at just sixteen, James Caan started his business life in a broom cupboard with no qualifications and two pieces of fatherly wisdom: 'observe the masses and do the opposite' and 'always look for opportunities where both parties benefit'. Armed with this advice, natural charm and the Yellow Pages, he built a market-leading business with a turnover of £130 million and swiftly became one of Britain's most successful entrepreneurs. From Caan's childhood as a Pakistani immigrant to the phenomenal success of his first company and beyond, The Real Deal traces both his financial and personal achievements. It offers a frank account of what success at thirty really signifies and brings us right up to the present, including his impact on Dragons' Den and what his charity work, from saving a hospital in London to building a school in Lahore, means to him. Ultimately, it is a story of learning what money is really worth, told by one the country's most insightful businessmen.

Edge of Empire by Jane M. Jacobs,Jane Margaret Jacobs Book Summary:
British imperialism carved its way through space: possessing and ordering territories across the globe. This spatial legacy is not a relic of the past, it lingers in the present and shapes the nature of postcolonial futures. Edge of Empire examines struggles over urban space in three contemporary First World cities in an attempt to map the real geographies of colonialism and postcolonialism. From London, the one-time heart of the empire, to Perth and Brisbane, scenes of Aboriginal claims for the sacred in the space of the modern city, Jacobs emphasises the global geography of the local and unravels the spatialised cultural politics of postcolonial processes. Edge of Empire forms the basis for understanding imperialism over space and time, and is a recognition of the unruly spatial politics of race and nation, nature and culture, past and present.
Immigrant Fictions by Rebecca Walkowitz Book Summary:
Immigrant Fictions is a groundbreaking collection that brings together studies of world literature, book history, narrative theory, and the contemporary novel to challenge methods of critical reading based on national models of literary culture. Contributors suggest that contemporary novels by immigrant writers need to be read across several geographies of production, circulation, and translation. Analyzing work by David Peace, George Lamming, Caryl Phillips, Iva Pekarkova, Yan Geling, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, Anchee Min, and Monica Ali, these essays take up a range of critical topics, including the transnational book and the migrant writer, the comparative reception history of postcolonial fiction, transnational criticism and Asian-American literature in the U. S., mobility and feminism in translation, linguistic mediation and immigrating fictions, migration and the politics of narrative form.
East End chronicles by Ed Glinert Book Summary:
From Medieval melting - pot to Victorian hellhole, Blitz bombing target to modern gentrification template, the East End has always been London's mysterious alter - ego, with an identity unlike anywhere else. East End Chronicles tells the dark, unusual and arcane stories of this curious area as they have never been told before, bringing it to life through the streets and characters - both well known and obscure - that have given the East End its identity through the centuries. Here is a place of mystics and mythmakers, crime and squalor, excess and transgression; a tight - knit community set apart from the rest of the city because of the industries that the rest of London didn't want; that absorbed wave upon wave of immigrants seeking shelter from persecution; that provided fertile terrain for political activists and philanthropists, as well as conmen, card sharps, extortionists, opium addicts, gangsters and the most notorious criminal of all, Jack the Ripper - for whose murders East End Chronicles contains an intriguing new theory.
