Overview

Mafia in America is a complete review of the U.S. Senate’s investigation into the organized crime in 1951, Special Committee on Organized Crime in Interstate Commerce (The Kefauver Committee). This book bring the riveting testimony of America’s largest crime bosses, the corrupt politicians, the dangerous molls, and the labor bosses that ruled American crime in the early 50s. In addition, the committee reports to the nation on the extensive tentacles of crime and corruption the Mafia had established in all socioeconomic reaches of American society. This senate hearing provided a dramatic stage for TV’s first live look at the crime bosses and gangsters the nation had only read about. Among them: Buggy Siegal, Frank Costello, Virginia Hill, Mayor William O’Dwyer of New York City and more. Through their responses to the Senator’s interrogation, the public was finally convinced not only of the very real existence of the Mafia in America but also the severity and looming threat to the American way of life. The hearings brought an awareness of the enormous impact organized crime had on the economy and politics to a previously naïve public. For only $7.99, this 164 page book is a must-read for any crime historians and mafia enthusiast.
