"Mafia, Cosa Nostra, Syndicate, the Organization, or the Mob - 'the corporate giants of crime annually enjoy a profit greater than General Motors, Standard Oil, Ford, General Electric and U.S. Stee l combined'. This shocking book, written by the law officer who, according to The New York Times, 'knows more about the Mafia than any man who is not a member of it', reveals the facts about organized crime. (The authors) begin with 'A Day i n t h e Life of Several Citizens', a narrative which dramatically emphasizes how organized crime touches and involves us all, and sets the scene for the revelations which follow. He tells about the money organized crime takes in ($40 billion a ye ar , b y a c onservative estimate), the systematic corruption of public officials, how our legal system often seems designed to protect the criminal, the organization of organized crime, the methods used by confederation leaders to exact and enf orc e l oy alt y an d obedience from their underlings, how the confederation is undermining many legitimate corporations - in short, a complete picture of the whole sinister operation of big crime in America."
