Historia de la mafia - Giuseppe Carlo Marino

A history of how the Mafia, from being a local Sicilian phenomenon, has spread to Italy and to the world, becoming entangled with politics, both Italian and international. More disquieting still, the story of its involvement in several Cold War operations. At the same time, a detailed history of the often heroic attempts to fight it. A carefully researched book, written with the mind of the historian and the passionate heart of the engaged citizen. The new edition of this best-selling book has been brought up to date, including an analysis of the verdict in the Andreotti trial.
