Mafia Republic : Italy's criminal curse : Cosa Nostra, Camorra and 'Ndrangheta from 1946 to the present

Dickie, John, 1963-2014
Books
John Dickie shows how the Italian mafias have grown in power and become more and more interconnected, with terrifying consequences. Today, the long shadow of mafia history still hangs over a nation wracked by debt, political paralysis, and widespread corruption. While police put their lives on the line every day, one of Silvio Berlusconi's ministers said that Italy had to 'learn to live with the mafia'; suspicions of mafia involvement still surround some of the country's most powerful media moguls and politicians.
