The Business of Crime: Italians and Syndicate Crime in the United States by Humbert S. Nelli

Dr. Humbert S. Nelli, a professor of history at the University of Kentucky, describes the kinds of crime that prevailed in Italian immigrant enclaves in America; like most American crime, then as now, Italian crime was one aspect of the so-called culture of urban poverty–boys graduated from street gangs to criminal gangs.

The Business of Crime: Italians and Syndicate Crime in the United States by Humbert S. Nelli is one of Malcolm Gladwell’s favorite books
