Based on previously unavailable information and nearly two decades of research, Crime Incorporated reveals for the first time all the unsavory facts of the Mob’s bloody evolution from a gang of uncouth, bumbling killers into the highly organized, smoothly running “corporation” it is today.  William Balsamo, great-nephew of the first godfather, Don Giuseppe — “Battista” — Balsamo, and George Carpozi, Jr. disclose the Mob’s savage beginnings in the group of Italian immigrants — the “Black Hand” — who tore control of New York’s waterfronts away from the Irish racketeers — the “White Hand” — and went from there.  They trace the Black Hand’s coalescence into an organization whose insidious influence reached across the country and into a presidential administration.Crime Incorporated explores the horrifying facts behind the rise and fall of the Mob’s most notorious leaders and goes behind the headlines of Rudolph Giuliani’s pursuit of the Mob — the Pizza Connection and Commission trials — to cite with chilling clarity the Mafia’s control over daily life in America. Crime Incorporated reads like a novel. But it is frightening, deadly truth.
