A Journey Through the Italian South
The hold of the Mafia on southern Italy, from Naples, home of Mafia-controlled mozzarella and toxic waste, through no less rotten Calabria to Sicily is as strong as ever. In this memorable journey round the cities and villages of the Italian South, David Lane gives us out of his unrivalled knowledge of Italy a telling expose of the operations of the Mafia today.
