-uses primary source documents, including confidential law enforcement files, court transcripts and interviews;
-explores the group's activities in detail, depicting some of the most notorious crimes in Philadelphia's history;
-thoroughly examines the organization of the Black Mafia and the group's alliances, conspiracies and conflicts;
-challenges many of the current historical and theoretical assumptions regarding organized crime.
