Summary
"For half a century, the American Mafia outwitted, outmaneuvered, and outgunned the FBI and other police agencies. Emerging as the nation's most formidable and venal crime empire, the Mafia - or Cosa Nostra - wreaked unparalleled damage to America's social fabric and vital business enterprises, from Wall Street to the construction industry. Almost every American alive today has been injured by the Mob's insatiable greed and invisible influence. It was a Mafia game plan that introduced the scourge of heroin into inner cities, provoking an epidemic of violent crime and the ruination of once-stable neighborhoods. It was Mob strategy that corrupted major labor unions, damaging the lives of thousands of honest workers, and through rigged contracts inflating the cost of homes, offices, garbage removal, clothing, food, and other basic products. The vanguard of this criminal juggernaut is still led by the Mafia's most potent and largest borgatas: New York's Five Families."
