Mafia Mystique

 
9780091227203: Mafia Mystique

A history of the development of the imagery linked to the term "mafia". The author aims to break down the mystique surrounding the word, attributing its buildup to sensational reporting, hidden agendas and the public's fascination with the idea of a secret criminal society. In tracing this mystique through history, the author determines how much of that image comes from actual events. A study of organized crime, this edition contains a new preface outlining and delineating his subsequent thinking and conclusions on this subject.
