About this item

Economic and social change on both sides of the Atlantic saw a sharp rise in gang-related crime at the beginning of the 20th century. Gangsters takes a compelling look at the dark underbelly of society where bootlegging, robbery, crime sprees, threats and corruption were part of everyday life. This book covers the life and business practices of this ‘Public Enemy Number 1' and other well-known gangsters including Vincent ‘The Chin' Gigante, Albert Anastasia, Joseph Bonanno, Dutch Schultz, John Gotti, Meyer Lansky, Frank Costello, Carlo Gambino and the notorious Gambino family, Charlie ‘Lucky' Luciano, Benjamin ‘Bugsy' Seigel, London's Kray twins, Pablo Escobar, Du Yuesheng and Salvatore Riina. The fact that these organised criminals became part of the modern cult of celebrity while their crimes became notable is fascinating and incredible.
