The Mob: The History of Irish Gangsters in America
The Mob follows the careers of many of the Irish gangs and gangsters from the early days of the Dead Rabbits and Plug Uglies to the Westies and Whitey Bulger. Author signed.
Long before the Mafia had arrived on the shores of the New World Irish gangsters were plying their trade of murder and mayhem. The Mob was the first book to deal with the bloody history of Irish involvement in the American organised crime scene.
Its all here - the murders and the motives, the gang wars and the executions, from the St. Valentine's Day Massacre to Boston's “Irish War”.
