5.0 out of 5 stars Brief and easy to understand. 16 Aug 2010
By Stelios
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book give a brief account of the Mafia, from its creation in Sicily, until prenest day.

You do not have to be a Mafia expert to read it, since the author provides the neccessary historical backgorund for all those who are not (including myself).

It is divided in small chapters and therefore, it is easy and quite pleasant to read.Not boring at all.Recommended to anyone interested in an introduction to Mafia history and activities.
