This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.

This October for the first time ever never-before-seen-objects from the London Metropolitan Police s Crime Museum will go on public display in a major new exhibition opening at the Museum of London. Since its establishment by serving officers in 1875, the Crime Museum has previously only been open to police professionals and invited guests.Using original evidence from this extraordinary collection, The Crime Museum Uncovered will unlock real-life case files to take the reader on an uneasy journey through some of the UK s most notorious crimes from Dr Crippen to the Krays, the Great Train Robbery to the Millennium Dome diamond heist. Created with the support of the Metropolitan Police Service and the Mayor s Office for Policing And Crime (MOPAC), the book will consider the changing nature of crime and advances in detection over the last 140 years, as well as the challenges faced in policing the capital, such as terrorism, drugs and rioting.Giving voice to the real people victims, perpetrators and police officers behind these objects the book will explore the impact of crime, personalising what is so often depersonalised. Confronting how, as a society, we respond when normality is shattered and lives are torn apart, we ll also be forced to question our enduring fascination with this hidden collection and its stories."
