new book out "Gangs of London" by Brian MacDonald. This being the Guardian, theyve concentrated on the distaff side. Apparently a female gang called "Forty Elephants" was operational in South London from the late 1700s to the 1950s. It would be interesting to know what the rest of the book is about. Maybe another newspaper will review it in the near future. It isnt clear from the review if it is out yet.
