Is the Mafia Still a Force in America? (At Issue)

Is the Mafia Still a Force in America? (At Issue) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Though stories of the Mafia's allure and power still pervade television and film, the criminal organization has shrunk considerably since the 1980s under a barrage of arrests and federal prosecutions. This anthology examines whether the Mafia is still a potent criminal force in America.

Synopsis:

The At Issue series includes a wide range of opinion on a single controversial issue. Each volume includes both primary and secondary sources from a variety of perspectives — eyewitnesses, scientific journals, government officials and many others. Extensive bibliographies and annotated lists of relevant organizations to contact offer a gateway to further research.
