Book Description

A fascinating insight into the true story behind Birmingham's most notorious gangs, The Peaky Blinders --This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

Professor Carl Chinn MBE Ph.D. is a social historian with a national profile, writer, public speaker, and teacher. An off-course bookmaker himself until 1984, he is the son and grandson of illegal bookmakers in Sparkbrook, and the great-grandson of a peaky blinder, whilst his mother's family were factory workers in Aston. His writings are deeply affected by his family's working-class background and life in the back-to-backs of Birmingham and he believes passionately that history must be democratised because each and every person has made their mark upon history and has a story to tell. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Publisher

1.0 out of 5 stars On the floor and that's where it will stay.
By Mr. J. Bunyard on 18 September 2020
Disappointing. What was said in 200 plus pages could easily have been said in less than 100.
Repetitive to say the least, and hardly informative.
We get the idea, the peaky blinders from the TV screen is nothing like the gangs that hung around on the streets of late Victorian Birmingham. Yet, the author feels he needs to prove this point time and time again. Explaining over and over about belt buckles, sloggers, heavy boots and peaked caps over the eyes.
Frankly this book has gained popularity due only to the popularity of the TV series.
Really or not we love peaky blinders, the series. And it would have been nice to pick up this book and really learnt something. Sadly, that's not the cause.
Not worth buying, let alone finishing.
