Description
During the early 1960s, federal investigators in the U.S. assembled information on 800-plus Mafia members worldwide into a thick, phone-book-sized directory--allegedly the book used by Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy to investigate the mob. The recently discovered text is reproduced in this facsimile edition, offering a rare glimpse into the roots of organized crime in the U.S. The directory begins with an alphabetical listing of the entries, with page numbers on which each is located, followed by the entries themselves alphabetically organized by state. Each entry includes the individual's name, aliases, physical description and photograph, localities frequented, family background, criminal associates, criminal history, business, and modus operandi. No subject index. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
