'A fascinating read...[Clive Bloom's] nineteenth century is far stranger and more wild - and far more exciting.'

- Judith Flanders, author of The Invention of Murder

"Bloom is a [...] public intellectual, a regular media commentator and the prolific author and editor of books on pulp fiction, Poe and Freud, graphic novels, politics and literature, best-sellers, American Gothic, British horror, violence and the occult. In short, he has street cred" Times Higher Education Magazine

Described by The Times as "a polymath", CLIVE BLOOM is Emeritus Professor of English and American Studies at Middlesex University, best-selling author and publisher. When Professor Bloom isn't writing and researching he divides his time between New York University and The University of Notre Dame.

Clive was the historical consultant to the BBC and a number of national and international newspapers on the G20 and the summer riots in Britain. He is an occasional feature writer for The Financial Times, The Times, The Guardian, The independent, The Irish Times and the London Evening Standard, regularly appearing on television and radio and he is quoted in the Columbia Book of World Quotations.

His numerous books include Restless Revolutionaries, Violent London: 2000 Years of Riots, Rebels and Revolts, Bestsellers: Popular Fiction Since 1900, Terror Within: The Dream of a British Republic, Cult Fiction: Popular Reading and Pulp Theory; and Gothic Horror, all of which have enjoyed international recognition.
