About this Item: Prometheus Books, United States, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. 1926. New York. The Roaring Twenties. Jazz. Flappers. Prohibition. Coal-powered cars. A cold war with a British Empire that still covers half of the globe. Yet things have developed differently from established history. America is in the midst of a cold war with a British Empire that has only just buried Queen Victoria, her life artificially preserved to the age of 107. Coal-powered cars roar along roads thick with pedestrians, biplanes take off from standing with primitive rocket boosters, and monsters lurk behind closed doors and around every corner. This is a time in need of heroes. It is a time for The Ghost. A series of targeted murders are occurring all over the city, the victims found with ancient Roman coins placed on their eyelids after death. The trail appears to lead to a group of Italian-American gangsters and their boss, who the mobsters have dubbed The Roman . However, as The Ghost soon discovers, there is more to The Roman than at first appears, and more bizarre happenings that he soon links to the man, including moss-golems posing as mobsters and a plot to bring an ancient pagan god into the physical world in a cavern beneath the city. As The Ghost draws nearer to The Roman and the center of his dangerous web, he must battle with foes both physical and supernatural and call on help from the most unexpected of quarters if he is to stop The Roman and halt the imminent destruction of the city.

About this Item: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Among the legendary athletes of the 1920s, the unquestioned halcyon days of sports, stands Gene Tunney, the boxer who upset Jack Dempsey in spectacular fashion, notched a 77--1 record as a prizefighter, and later avenged his sole setback (to a fearless and highly unorthodox fighter named Harry Greb). Yet within a few years of retiring from the ring, Tunney willingly receded into the background, renouncing the image of jock celebrity that became the stock in trade of so many of his contemporaries. To this day, Gene Tunney s name is most often recognized only in conjunction with his epic long count second bout with Dempsey. In Tunney, the veteran journalist and author Jack Cavanaugh gives an account of the incomparable sporting milieu of the Roaring Twenties, centered around Gene Tunney and Jack Dempsey, the gladiators whose two titanic clashes transfixed a nation. Cavanaugh traces Tunney s life and career, taking us from the mean streets of Tunney s native Greenwich Village to the Greenwich, Connecticut, home of his only love, the heiress Polly Lauder; from Parris Island to Yale University; from Tunney learning fisticuffs as a skinny kid at the knee of his longshoreman father to his reign atop boxing s glamorous heavyweight division. Gene Tunney defied easy categorization, as a fighter and as a person. He was a sex symbol, a master of defensive boxing strategy, and the possessor of a powerful, and occasionally showy, intellect-qualities that prompted the great sportswriters of the golden age of sports to portray Tunney as aloof. This intelligence would later serve him well in the corporate world, as CEO of several major companies and as a patron of the arts. And while the public craved reports of bad blood between Tunney and Dempsey, the pair were, in reality, respectful ring adversaries who in retirement grew to share a sincere lifelong friendship-with Dempsey even stumping for Tunney s son, John, during the younger Tunney s successful run for Congress. Tunney offers a unique perspective on sports, celebrity, and popular culture in the 1920s. But more than an exciting and insightful real-life tale, replete with heads of state, irrepressible showmen, mobsters, Hollywood luminaries, and the cream of New York society, Tunney is an irresistible story of an American underdog who forever changed the way fans look at their heroes.

About this Item: Arcadia Publishing (SC), United States, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Philadelphia Organized Crime in the 1920s and 1930s explores a little-known but spirited chapter of the Quaker City s history. The hoodlums, hucksters, and racketeers of Prohibition-era Philadelphia sold bootleg booze, peddled illicit drugs, ran numbers, and operated prostitution and insurance rings. Among the fascinating personalities that created and contributed to the Philadelphia crime scene of the 1920s and 1930s were empire builders like Mickey Duffy, known as Prohibition s Mr. Big, and Max Boo Boo Hoff, dubbed the King of the Bootleggers ; the violent Lanzetti brothers, who ran their own illegal enterprise; mobster Harry Nig Rosen Stromberg, a New York transplant; and the arsenic widows poison ring, which specialized in fraud and murder. Bringing to light rare photographs and forgotten characters, the authors chronicle the underworld of Philadelphia in the interwar era. The upheaval caused by the gangs and groups herein mirrors the frenzied cultural and political shifts of the Roaring Twenties and the austere 1930s. Seller Inventory # AAS9781467121170

Ryans of Red Hook, a historical novel of 81,000 words, opens in 1921 and ends during the Great Depression when Prohibition is repealed. Liam and Packy Ryan associate with politicians, police, bootleggers, mobsters and show biz types when the fledgling Cosa Nostra resolves to eliminate all Irish gangs in New York. In the Roaring -- often lawless -- Twenties, Liam Ryan, seeking a better life than that of a dock worker, hijacks a shipment of bootleg whiskey off the Brooklyn docks, stealing it from the wrong people. When the mob and prohibition agents come after him, he solicits help from his cousin Packy Ryan, speakeasy owner and numbers game operator, to solve his dilemma. We follow the adventures of Liam as he gets appointed to the NYPD and Packy as he associates with the famous Brooklyn gangster, Charles Vannie Higgins, to expand his speakeasy from one to several more.

The upheaval caused by the gangs and groups herein mirrors the frenzied cultural and political shifts of the Roaring Twenties and the austere 1930s. Seller Inventory # AAS9781467121170

When the mob and prohibition agents come after him, he solicits help from his cousin Packy Ryan, speakeasy owner and numbers game operator, to solve his dilemma. We follow the adventures of Liam as he gets appointed to the NYPD and Packy as he associates with the famous Brooklyn gangster, Charles Vannie Higgins, to expand his speakeasy from one to several more.

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. 1926. New York. The Roaring Twenties. Jazz. Flappers. Prohibition. Coal-powered cars. A cold war with a British Empire that still covers half of the globe. Yet things have developed differently from established history. America is in the midst of a cold war with a British Empire that has only just buried Queen Victoria, her life artificially preserved to the age of 107. Coal-powered cars roar along roads thick with pedestrians, biplanes take off from standing with primitive rocket boosters, and monsters lurk behind closed doors and around every corner. This is a time in need of heroes. It is a time for The Ghost. A series of targeted murders are occurring all over the city, the victims found with ancient Roman coins placed on their eyelids after death. The trail appears to lead to a group of Italian-American gangsters and their boss, who the mobsters have dubbed The Roman . However, as The Ghost soon discovers, there is more to The Roman than at first appears, and more bizarre happenings that he soon links to the man, including moss-golems posing as mobsters and a plot to bring an ancient pagan god into the physical world in a cavern beneath the city. As The Ghost draws nearer to The Roman and the center of his dangerous web, he must battle with foes both physical and supernatural and call on help from the most unexpected of quarters if he is to stop The Roman and halt the imminent destruction of the city.

About this Item: AUTHORHOUSE, United States, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The Great War was over and a changed America was about to plunge headlong into the Roaring Twenties. With the onset of Prohibition, saints and sinners, ministers and mobsters rub elbows unlike any other time before or since. Old enemies become friends and friends become enemies. Prohibition quickly turns into the biggest employment opportunity in history-madmen become millionaires and small time hoodlums become kings. And crime gets organized. Shortly after Tommy Trent steps in to help reorganize Fat Eddie DiStella s neighborhood, everyone realizes that Tommy is taking over. Everyone but Fat Eddie, that is. And after Tommy saves Eddie s daughter s life, Eddie turns a blind eye to his take-over of the biggest speakeasy in the neighborhood and the way Tommy turns it into the biggest nightclub in the city. Dottie s is run by the glamorous Dottie Deuce, Tommy s best friend with whom he has been in love since he was a boy. But Fat Eddie s daughter has fallen in love with Tommy, too. And as Tommy pays less and less attention to her and her father, and begins palling around with Rocco Petrelli, the Babe Ruth of Crime, Fat Eddie begins to see red. In those uncanny days of Prohibition, as rival gangs declare war over barrels of beer, where alliances are made to be broken, an act of betrayal goes awry, sparking the bloodiest gang war the country has ever seen. Will time and circumstance come together for Tommy and Dottie or will they succumb to a long harrowing battle filled with triumph and heartache, bullets and bottles? Set against the back drop of the Roaring Twenties, filled with hot jazz, bootleg booze and hot young flappers, Racketeers is a tale of a forgotten breed of gangster, the pioneers of organized crime, and the women who loved them.

Strategically located seven miles west of Chicago s Loop, multifaceted Cicero is one of the oldest and largest municipalities in Illinois. In the late 19th century, this unique industrial suburb developed as an ethnic patchwork of self-sufficient immigrant neighborhoods. Since the Roaring Twenties, when mobster kingpin Al Capone set up shop there, the town has often been characterized by corruption and controversy. Yet the Cicero story continues to be full of promise and adventure, vision and accomplishment. As its population has shifted from heavily eastern European to predominantly Hispanic, Cicero remains a vibrant community where residents maintain strong civic pride, work ethic, and family values.

About this Item: Random House USA Inc. Paperback / softback. Condition: new. BRAND NEW, L.A. Noir: The Struggle for the Soul of America's Most Seductive City, John Buntin, Other cities have histories." Los Angeles has legends. " Midcentury Los Angeles. A city sold to the world as "the white spot of America," a land of sunshine and orange groves, wholesome Midwestern values and Hollywood stars, protected by the world's most famous police force, the Dragnet-era LAPD. Behind this public image lies a hidden world of "pleasure girls" and crooked cops, ruthless newspaper tycoons, corrupt politicians, and East Coast gangsters on the make. Into this underworld came two men-one L.A.'s most notorious gangster, the other its most famous police chief-each prepared to battle the other for the soul of the city. Former street thug turned featherweight boxer Mickey Cohen left the ring for the rackets, first as mobster Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel's enforcer, then as his protege. A fastidious dresser and unrepentant killer, the diminutive Cohen was Hollywood's favorite gangster-and L.A.'s preeminent underworld boss. Frank Sinatra, Robert Mitchum, and Sammy Davis Jr. palled around with him; TV journalist Mike Wallace wanted his stories; evangelist Billy Graham sought his soul. William H. Parker was the proud son of a pioneering law-enforcement family from the fabled frontier town of Deadwood. As a rookie patrolman in the Roaring Twenties, he discovered that L.A. was ruled by a shadowy "Combination"-a triumvirate of tycoons, politicians, and underworld figures where alliances were shifting, loyalties uncertain, and politics were practiced with shotguns and dynamite. Parker's life mission became to topple it-and to create a police force that would never answer to elected officials again. These two men, one morally unflinching, the other unflinchingly immoral, would soon come head-to-head in a struggle to control the city-a struggle that echoes unforgettably through the fiction of Raymond Chandler and movies such as "The Big Sleep, Chinatown," and "L.A. Confidential." For more than three decades, from Prohibition through the Watts Riots, the battle between the underworld and the police played out amid the nightclubs of the Sunset Strip and the mansions of Beverly Hills, from the gritty streets of Boyle Heights to the manicured lawns of Brentwood, intersecting in the process with the agendas and ambitions of J. Edgar Hoover, Robert F. Kennedy, and Malcolm X. The outcome of this decades-long entanglement shaped modern American policing-for better and for worse-and helped create the Los Angeles we know today. A fascinating examination of Los Angeles's underbelly, the Mob, and America's most admired-and reviled-police department, "L.A. Noir" is an enlightening, entertaining, and richly detailed narrative about the city originally known as El Pueblo de Nuestra Se-ora la Reina de los Angeles, "The Town of Our Lady the Queen of the Angels." "From the Hardcover edition.". Seller Inventory # B9780307352088

About this Item: Cambridge Street. Paperback. Condition: New. 362 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.8in.In the early 1900s, the Mafia controls much of Sicily, the government is corrupt, and taxes are exorbitant. As a result of the terrible conditions and the limits of their crops, Tomas and Katerina Tomaso are forced to send their three grown sons and their grandchildren to live in America. It is a heart-breaking split: grandparents forced to say goodbye to grandchildren knowing they will likely never see them again. Parents and sons splitting from each other. Paolo and Gianna, their two young children and the two younger brothers endure a painful farewell to the people, the farm and the life they love. They arrive in Chicago on Christmas Day at the dawning of the Roaring Twenties. The sprawling, dirty, smelly city is not like anything they could have imagined or dreamed. The family moves into a fourth floor apartment in a run-down tenement building in the Little Italy section of town. The streets are run by mobsters, politicians and crooked cops, not much different from their homeland. The family soon learns that they are now in the lower class. The two-century family history of hard work and honesty in the Old Country does not matter here. They endure prejudice in the workplace, in the lack of social services and in the absence of police protection. Jobs were hard to find, especially for Italians and even worse for Sicilians. Poverty and discrimination humble them all. Life was tough, but they learned to be tougher. Slowly, the family overcomes obstacles and adjusts to their new homeland. TThe children grow and become Americans. The family was finally settled and content when a terrible and unforgiveable act of violence committed against them by their Italian countrymen - struck the family, hard. Paolo and Giannas dreams and hopes for their future and for their children hang in the balance as they decide on the course of action that will define them as people and determine their futures. Plots and tensions simmer and boil over in a shocking conclusion early one morning on Cambridge Street. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
