Reprint. Originally published: London: Longmans, Green, 1935.

No book is more associated with the city of Glasgow than No Mean City.

First published in 1935, it is the story of Johnnie Stark, son of a violent father and a downtrodden mother, the 'Razor King' of Glasgow's pre-war slum underworld, the Gorbals.

The savage, near-truth descriptions, the raw character portrayals, bring to life a story that is fascinating, authentic and convincing.
