BeschreibungAn investigation into poverty, corruption, crime and related issues in Britain including drugs and prostitution amongst children. The investigation moves from the slums and ghettos of our cities, to crack houses and brothels, contacts with street gangs and drug dealers uncovering secret rites and a bizarre and cruel world.
PortraitNick Davies writes investigative stories for the Guardian, and has been named Journalist of the Year, Reporter of the Year and Feature Writer of the Year in British press awards. Apart from his work on newspapers, he also makes television documentaries and has written four books: White Lies, which uncovered a racist miscarriage of justice in Texas; Murder on Ward Four, which examined the collapse of the NHS through the murder of children by Nurse Beverly Allitt; Dark Heart, a journey through the wasteland of British poverty; and Flat Earth News, exposing the shocking corruption of today's media. He has three children and lives in Sussex.
Pressestimmen"This book should be required reading...it will shock many to the quick, that all this could be happening under their noses" -- Jack Straw Guardian "He describes what he sees and hears with exemplary clarity, neither pulling punches nor exaggerating... Read him to discover how dreadful a country much of Britain has become" -- Theodore Dalrymple Sunday Telegraph "A most powerful and harrowing piece of investigative journalism...it takes a very brave and persistent reporter to reach the hidden part of Britain that Davies has chosen to explore" -- Peregrine Worsthorne New Statesman "If you want to find out about the poor, you have to go looking. Most people, most writers, don't bother. Nick Davies has bothered, and he should be congratulated...his analysis is spot on" -- Robert Crampton The Times "A brilliant journalistic investigation... A copy should be sent to every Labour MP to remind them of their responsibilities" -- Robert McCrum Observer
