Review

Chilling and eye-opening. (Bill Emmott The Times)

'I've been so unsettled by John Dickie's Mafia Republic - his angry and moving new history of the power of the Italian criminal fraternities since the Second World War.' (Samira Ahmed Big Issue)

REVIEWS FOR MAFIA BROTHERHOODS: (.)

His narrative bowls along, powered by the sort of muscular prose one associates with great detective fiction. An exhilarating history. (Financial Times)

'Exciting and well-written... like a 19th-century Sopranos'. (Shortlist)

'Fine social history and hair-raising true crime'. (Independent)

By shining a light so powerfully into the darkest recesses of mafia mythology and history, Dickie's new book will certainly provide a concrete tool in the anti-mafia struggle to which many Italians and Calabrians in Australia and Italy are passionately committed. (Australian Literary Review)

Magisterial ... absorbing. (Scotsman)

BLOOD BROTHERHOODS is almost certainly the most ambitious true-crime assignment ever. The result is a stunning success: a sprawling, powerful historical narrative that is the definitive story of Sicily's Mafia, the Camorra of Naples, and Calabria's 'Ndrangheta. (The Adelaide Advertiser)

Yet Dickie thinks there are "more reasons for optimism today than at any point in the past"... it's a point well made. (Financial Times)

Book Description

The author of the bestselling COSA NOSTRA and MAFIA BROTHERHOODS explores the terrifying consequences of the rise of the Italian mafias. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
