Five Families: The Rise, Decline and Resurgence of America's Most Powerful Mafia Empires Selwyn Raab

"Talk about stranger than fiction. Selwyn Raab tells riveting, true tales of the fabled mob figures. It's 'The Godfather' annotated - a classic piece of reporting by a man who knows the bloody, brutal, corrupt territory." - Mike Wallace, '60 Minutes'

This extensively researched account of the fabled New York mob figures we alternately despise and glamorize provides the most comprehensive history of the city's criminal empires that have intimidated, killed and fleeced Americans and confounded law enforcement for over 100 years.

From their New York headquarters, the Bonnano, Colombo, Gambino, Genovese and Lucchese crime 'familes' have created a vast domain with outposts along the East Coast, Florida, California and Las Vegas. With influence over everything from the price of fruit and vegetables, waterfront commerce in America's largest port, the construction industry, local and national government, the FBI, even refuse collection and the heroin trade, the Cosa Nostra's hold on everyday life is unprecedented.

Selwyn Raab has managed to persuade mafiosi and their helpmates to talk candidly for the first time, and he unravels their mysterious codes and culture to elucidate the art of surviving in a volatile criminal environment.

In the light of the success of John Dickie's bestselling 'Cosa Nostra' and the enduring allure of the Mafia in pop culture ('The Sopranos', 'The Godfather Returns'), this fascinating and definitive work is at once a history of the world's most sophisticated and lucrative underworld phenomena and an investigation into the pillage of New York's richest city and region. Selwyn Raab not only reveals where the bodies are buried, he brings them back to life.

Über Selwyn Raab

New York-based journalist Selwyn Raab has covered the Mafia for years with a near-insider's view. He played an important role in exposing fabricated testimony surrounding the conviction of Rubin 'Hurricane' Carter, and is also the author of 'Justice in the Back Room' (which was the basis for the legendary TV series 'Kojak') and 'Mob Lawyer', which shed new light on who killed Jimmy Hoffa and JFK. Raab wrote John Gotti's obituary in the 'New York Times'.
