  1. Kessinger Publishing specializes in reprints of rare, scarce, and out-of-print books. These are frequently facsimile editions of the original works and often the only version of the original text available. But, please note before purchasing: because of the condition of the original texts and difficulty in reproducing them, the reprints are sometimes difficult to read.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

1930. The story of Capone, the most notorious gangster in the history of the nation. Alphonse Capone, better known to most as Al Capone or Scarface, ran Chicago with blood and guns. From the beginning, Capone didn't respond well to authority. While in the sixth grade he beat his female teacher. Following the incident he left school and faced with a life of low-paying jobs, he joined the street gang led by Johny Torrio and Lucky Luciano. And, as they say, the rest is history. Despite his years of running the rackets, it was eventually for tax evasion that he served time.
