Capone - The Man And The Era Summary


He was cunning, wealthy and flamboyant. Al Capone's life has captured the imagination of generations and assumed legendary prortions. His Neapolitan heritage, his childhood on the streets of Brooklyn, and his rapid rise as the nation's chief bootlegger all shaped him into the most powerful and notorious gangster of the Prohibition Era. Simultaneously presenting the facade of a family man and civic benefactor, he was also the man behind the St Valentine's Day Massacre - the man who invented corporate crime. In this biography, the author attempts to pull the real man from behind the myth, drawing on interviews with family, friends and colleagues.
