Bringing down the mob : the war against the American Mafia

Image of item
Book

1st ed.

In American Mafia, former police commander Reppetto narrated the ferocious ascendancy of organized crime in America. In this sequel, he follows the mob from its peak into a shadowy period of decline as the government, no longer able to deny its existence, made subduing the Mafia a matter of national priority. Reppetto draws on a lifetime of experience to tell the stories of the Mafia's leadership, showing how men such as Sam Giancana and John Gotti became household names. Crusaders like Robert Kennedy led concerted--if sometimes sporadic--attacks against organized crime. As the battles between the feds and the Mafia moved from the streets to the courtrooms, Reppetto describes how it came to resemble a conflict between sovereign powers.--From publisher description.
