Description:

Paperback. 448 pages. Dimensions: 8.6in. x 5.6in. x 1.2in.Invites Italian-Americans of all backgrounds to the family table to discuss how mob-related movies and television shows have affected the very notion of what their heritage still means in the 21st century. --Allen Barra, The New York SunA detailed, textured meditation. Whether De Stefano is summarizing causes of 19th-century Italian immigration, sketching the Mafias origin in Sicily, or dissecting the appeal of Hollywood mobster characters, he catches links to evolving capitalism, discomfort with modern society, psychological urges for strong father figures, and other complex topics not usually addressed by opponents of Mafia pop culture. De Stefano provokes hard thought about why the Mafia, to the exclusion of almost every other dimension of Italian American life, stays lodged in the Mind of America. --Carlin Romano, The Philadelphia InquirerFascinating. --JamesF. Sweeney, The Plain Dealer (Cleveland)Not a history of organized crime but a study of how we think about organized crime, more precisely about Italians and crime. . . Valuable and interesting. --Elliott J. Gorn, Chicago TribuneA thoughtful, thorough analysis. --Renee Graham, The Boston Globe This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory #
