Inhumanely cruel and irresistibly cool, the Mafia has always captured the darker side of the imagination. But just what is the Mafia, how does it operate, and what can be done to combat it?
In this dramatic and informative audiobook, James Finckenauer rejects the Mafia mystique and explores the sinister reality lurking beneath the romanticised surface. Demonstrating that the Mafia is a multi-faceted and complex phenomenon, he argues that it destabilises society on a global scale through its control of criminal markets, violence and corruption.
Mafia and Organised Crime is indispensable for anyone intrigued by, or concerned about, this widely misunderstood phenomenon.
