‘Jane Palm-Gold’s research and art have not only re-energised study of the notorious St Giles Rookery. They have done two other things of great value. They have demonstrated the immense value of multi-disciplinary approaches to urban history. And they have enlightened us about social problems and moral panics in our own contemporary urban context.’
