'...the first complete analysis of the successes and failures of the Italian Antimafia.' - Crime and Justice International

'...a hallmark since it uses primary sources, the latest data and interviews with senior judges, politicians, police officers and relatives of mafia victims, including the courageous women of the grassroots antimafia movement.' - Don DeNevi, Palo Alto Daily News

'Jamieson's book is the best available general account of the contemporary Mafia and Italian organized crime; it is well argued and documented, and terrifying by implication...together with Alexander Stille's Excellent Cadavers and Patrick McCarthy's Crisis of the Italian State, it is one of the best recent books on contemporary Italy.' - Robert Fox, Times Literary Supplement
