East End Gangland/Gangland International Summary

East End Gangland/Gangland International by James Morton

EAST END GANGLAND - In this fascinating and revealing book, James Morton looks back at the crimes and the criminals that have given the East End its legendary reputation: the Sabini brothers, nicknamed 'The Italian Mob', whose extortion racket was helped by a close relationship with the police; the fight, in the 1950s, for 'King of the Underworld' between Jack Spot and Billy Hill; the rise and fall of the Krays and many others....

INTERNATIONAL GANGLAND - Fast-paced and wide-ranging, this book considers the history of organised crime, from the Italian and American Mafia to the Triads, the Russian mafiya, the Japanese Yakuza and the South American drug cartels. James Morton also examines the role of the Green Gang of Shanghai, that of Rocco perri in Toronto, the Australian razor gangs, new Zealnd's Mongrel Mob, the Dbois family of Montreal and the French Zemour brothers....
