for a while multiplied and fiercer He has to adapt to market conditions to chose which operations to carry out which people to exploit which form of violence to seThat sounds like a description of Tony Soprano it was published in 1877 Yes 1877 What sort of blind amnesia does Italy suffer from And Dickie is absolutely clear this secret society based on violence has not melted away I loved it It was full of knowledge and easy to read Even though I violence has not melted away I loved it It was full of knowledge and easy to read Even though I to separate chapters because I was doing a research at the same time I would recommend it to anyone who like this kind of topic and wants to know This is a study on the notorious criminal organisation the Sicilian Mafia Cosa Nostra Over the years Cosa Nostra has become an alternative source of political power in the Southern Italian island The reach of this criminal organisation has spread its tentacles across the globe becoming a feared and respected multinational criminal organisation From humble roots in dealing with cattle rustling the Cosa Nostra moved into traditional mafia activities such as protection rackets and later made very heavy profits in drug smuggling The Cosa Nostra is a difficult theme to research due to the clandestine nature of its activities It is a secret brotherhood and we learn of its hierarchy and organisation plus its almost religious like entry rituals It can be bloodthirsty and strict and its internal discipline is its means of maintaining its power It is in effect a tandem organisation to State power in Italy and its members even on the run are able to live clandestinely with few problems The links between Cosa Nostra and the American Mafia was interesting Joe Bananas a figure that bridged the gap between both worlds The two mafia wars of the Twentieth century were bloody and Cosa Nostra resorted to terrorism in its fight amongst itself and also with the state There has been a very damaging emergence of Pentiti who are whistleblowers who reveal to the authorities the crimes of former colleagues in exchange for immunity or freedom The Cosa Nostra was brought to the brink of destruction by some of these treacherous characters The Maxi Trial led by antimafia judges such as Falcone caused much devastation and meant a change in strategy leadership and tactics Falcone ended p suffering a gruesome death a fate shared by very many enemies of Cosa Nostra It was interesting seeing some of the dirty political dealings that many leading Italian political figures have with Cosa Nostra including well known long term President Silvio Berlusconi The research for this book was often second hand relying on preceding authors and also details could often be fussy due to a lot of the knowledge of structure of the organisation and its activities come from Pentiti who often are less than reliable sources due to their own bias I felt that it was an interesting and enlightening study although towards the end of the book the author s clear antimafia stance became a little annoying as I felt could have been subjective and perhaps focussed too much on the Crime aspect of Cosa Nostra and lacked respect in terms of seeing it as a perhaps positive force in much of what it does. Than life cultural phenomenon Dickie's dazzling cast of characters includes Antonio Giammona the first boss of bosses''; New York cop Joe Petrosino who nderestimated the Sicilian mafia and paid for it with his life; and Bernard the Tractor Provenzano the current boss of bosses who has been hiding in Sicily since 196.
