The Inside Story of the Mafia's First 100 Years
by William Balsamo and George Carpozi, Jr.
Based on previously unavailable information and nearly two decades of research, Crime Inc. gives the real story of the beginnings of the Mafia in the United States. It tells for the first time what actually happened as control of the rackets-extortion, protection, carting and hauling, cement industry and beer and liquor distributorships—as well as the New York waterfront—was wrested away from the Irish racketeers by Italian crime families.
