Synopsis

Into the Heart of the Mafia A Journey Through the Italian South by David Lane

Lane shows how globalisation has transformed the Mafia into more than simply a local phenomenon. It describes in painful detail the daily accommodation to Mafia pressure endured by priests, politicians and prosecutors, businessmen, trade unionists and ordinary citizens. At the same time he incorporates a portrait of the South's long and tumultuous history and powerful flavours to provide a richly coloured portrait of a European region under siege.

Reviews

A sensitive portrait of heroic, often isolated individuals who have fought against 150 years of criminality. With meticulous reporting [Lane] meets the people who have encountered and resisted the Mafia
