9780061363856: Mafia: The Government's Secret File on Organized Crime

Now, in an unbelievable find, comes the long-buried Bible of the Mafia and all its most storied players, at the height of that watershed era. Some time in the early 1960s, federal investigators compiled every known piece of information on more than 800 members of organized crime in the United States-from influential old-school gangsters like Lucky Luciano, Meyer Lansky, and Frank Costello to the emerging thugs, like Joe Bonanno, Paul Castellano, and Vincent "the Chin" Gigante, who would dominate the criminal underworld in the 1960s and 1970s.Only fifty copies of this material-bound in a three-ring black binder, labelled simply MAFIA in green letters-were ever printed, and the book became the mother lode. Robert F Kennedy used to go after the Mob in his years as attorney general. One page of the book was devoted to every mobster, giving vital statistics, known aliases, family background, criminal record, and modus operandi; the result is an irresistibly browse able digest of hard facts and richly colourful details.
