Evil Life: The True Story of the Calabrian Mafia in Australia (Paperback, Main)

By Small, Clive
By Gilling, Tom

As powerful today as it ever was, the Mafia's involvement in organised crime in Australia is long and deep. Despite denials by major policing organisations of its existence in this country, the key Mafia families in Australia are linked to international crime syndicates around th...e world. Shifting massive stashes of drugs and money through increasingly complex networks, these families have also had significant connections to law enforcement agencies and government. With powerful and uncomporomising clarity, Evil Life shows that Australia is a key part of the global drug network. It also demonstrates how cultural ties built on decades of Italian migration have been used to create modern and highly sophisticated crime syndicates. The dark side of the Italian diaspora is revealed in all its unexpected detail.
