5.0 out of 5 stars Depth and insight, 7 Sep 2013
An account which is not the most recent but which is still the best. An engrossing academic analysis which is not for anyone expecting a technicolour Hollywood account but which is nevertheless gripping. The origins of the Mafia and its entanglements in politics and businesses are especially well - handled. For anyone seriously interested in this subject it's a book not to be missed.
Cosa Nostra: An Illustrated History of the Mafia by Massimo Picozzi
4.0 out of 5 stars Engrossing., 7 Sep 2013
A first class run through a pictorial history of the Mafia. I was surprised by the quality of the text, which though brief gives a very pithy and intelligent summary of this organization. I would have liked to have seen a lengthier text but the photographs are what the book is about and they are well - chosen with many fresh ones I had not seen before.

A must have set for all lovers of this series. Other reviewers have expressed concern at the quality of the discs but mine have been faultless
