C. Alexander Hortis, The Mob and the City: The Hidden History of How the Mafia Captured New York

C. Alexander Hortis, The Mob and the City: The Hidden History of How the Mafia Captured New York

Informative, authoritative, and eye-opening, The Mob and the City is the first full-length book devoted exclusively to uncovering the hidden history of how the Mafia came to dominate organized crime in New York City during the 1930s through the 1950s.

Baltimore attorney and author C. Alexander Hortis draws on newly discovered primary sources to consider the Sicilian gangs' role in the criminal underworld, the Mafia's real role in the drug trade, and the Cosa Nostra's involvement in gay bars in New York.

Cosponsored by the Free State Legal Project.
