Organized Crime in Chicago
Beyond the MafiaBook - 2013
Lombardo provides a comprehensive sociological explanation for the emergence and continuation of organized crime in Chicago. Tracing the roots of political corruption that afforded protection to gambling, prostitution, and other vice activity in Chicago, he challenges the dominant belief that organized crime in America descends directly from the Sicilian Mafia.
