9780060163570: Mafia Dynasty: Rise and Fall of the Gambino Crime Family

This work traces the history of the Gambino crime family, from its earliest beginnings in the 1920s, through to the conviction of its charismatic leader John Gotti in 1992. John Davis tells the multi-generational saga of the most powerful and murderous Mafia family in America. Tracing the Gambinos' rise from poverty in Sicily to the pinnacle of influence in the American underworld, and on to their besiegement by law enforcement officials today, the book is a portrait of a bygone era, and an account of the present battle ground of the age-old war between the American Government and La Cosa Nostra. Drawing on many inside sources, including a contact within the Gambino family, Davis reveals for the first time the unseen dynamics of this vast criminal enterprise and the personalities behind it. He covers such topics as: how the strict hierarchical structure of La Cosa Nostra was formed; young Carlo Gambino's ascension through the ranks of power; the Gambino domination of the construction, trucking and garment industries; the US Government's alliance with the Mafia families during World War II; mob family life, with an inside look at the unusual influence of the Gambino women; and the 1992 trial and conviction of the "Teflon Don", boss John Gotti. John H. Davis is the author of "Mafia Kingfish" and "The Kennedys: Dynasty and Disaster".
