Outsiders in London

 

COMMENTARY

This RESOURCE IS CURRENTLY UNDER DEVELOPMENT and NEW TOPICS will be added as time permits - we urge you to revisit the page FROM TIME TO TIME.

THIS PAGE PROVIDES A DIRECTORY of ANCILLARY INFORMATION AND VARIOUS STATISTICAL, SOCIOLOGICAL, SOCIO-POLITICAL, MEDICAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL DATA RELATING TO THE TOPICS COVERED IN THE PROJECT

The purpose of these notes is, in the spirit of education, to provide the reader with some additional information about specific topics covered in the sitters’ interviews and to draw together statistical, sociological and other relevant data which could not easily be incorporated into the records of the interviews themselves.


The notes are largely constructed from widely-available published materials on the topic in question and every effort has been made to exclude material which could be seen as spurious or contentious.   Of course, though care has been taken to draw only from bona fide sources, it cannot be claimed that these notes are authoritative;  for those who are already expert or who wish to delve further into a specific subject, cross-referencing with other reliable references is recommended.


While no material has been consciously included that might be deemed sexist, racist or offensive in some other way to a particular minority group or to individuals adhering to a particular religious creed or moral code, it is hardly to be expected that everyone will agree with every observation and conclusion.
