"British Gangster & 'Exploitation' Paperbacks of the Post War Years"

Colour covers and over 300 lurid books illustrated with values. Of great interest to book collectors, dealers and anyone interested in Popular Culture. The underbelly of the British postwar publishing industry is exposed in this book. These pulp paperbacks were turned out in their millions for essentially the male postwar reader desperate for tales of violence and sex. Many of the books are extremely scarce and highly prized for their hard-boiled tales of gangsters and their molls. Here is a visual history of the authors, artists and publishers of 1950s trash culture that led to many prosecutions for obscenity.Introduction is by Stephen Holland, the acknowledged expert and author of Mushroom Jungle - a history of Postwar Paperback Publishing (also published by Zeon).
