This is very hard to take in. The field can easily be divided into pre and post Sugden periods with The Complete History ushering in a golden era in Ripperology. Very sad.

I'm so very sorry hear that. My deepest sympathy to his family and friends.

His work will always stand at the forefront of Ripper scholarship

Sad new indeed. His book is one of the reasons I went from interested in the case to fascinated with it.

How sad, we are all indebted to Phil, and at only 67? - too young.

The theory that the murderer is a lunatic is dispelled by the opinion given to the police by an expert in the treatment of lunacy patients......."If he's insane
" observed the medical authority, "he's a good deal sharper than those who are not".

it is turning into a very sad year for researchers into our chosen subject.
To write a "ripper" book that stands the test of time is a near impossibility,
Philip Sugden put the "near" in front of impossibility.
Thanks for your time,

"Complete History" was the first book I owned on the subject and it got me hooked.

I can only echo the thoughts of others in my condolences for the family and thanks for the invaluable material he has left us behind.

Very sad to hear about Philip's death, I still consider his book to be at the very top of the list on Jack the Ripper.
