📙 Challenging the Mafia Mystique: Cosa Nostra from Legitimisation to Denunciation by Rino Coluccello (auth.) — pdf free


This book provides an analysis of the changes the Sicilian mafia has undergone from legitimisation to denunciation. It argues that conceptualisations of the mafia in public and scientific debate, during the nineteenth and more than half of the twentieth century, created a mystique that legitimised the mafia and contributed to their success.
