Cosa Nostra: A History of the Sicilian Mafia
Hodder & Stoughton, 2004 - 483 pagine
The Mafia has been given many names since it was founded one hundred and forty years ago: the Sect, the Brotherhood, the Honoured Society, and now Cosa Nostra. Yet as times have changed, the Mafia's subtle and bloody methods have remained the same. Now, for the first time, COSA NOSTRA reconstructs the complete history of the Sicilian Mafia from its origins to the present day, from the lemon groves and sulphur mines of Sicily, to the streets of Manhattan.
COSA NOSTRA is a definitive history, rich in atmosphere, and with the narrative pace of the best detective fiction.
The mob genre has finally grown up.
