The hold of the Mafia on southern Italy, from Naples, home of Mafia-controlled mozzarella and toxic waste, through no less rotten Calabria to Sicily, cradle of Cosa Nostra, is as strong as ever. In this memorable journey round the cities and villages of the Italian South, David Lane gives us out of his unrivalled knowledge of Italy a telling expose of the operations of the Mafia today. Lane shows how globalisation has transformed the Mafia into more than simply a local phenomenon.

He describes in painful detail the daily accommodation to Mafia pressure endured by priests, politicians and prosecutors, businessmen, trade unionists and ordinary citizens. At the same time, he incorporates a portrait of the South's long and tumultuous history and powerful flavours to provide a richly coloured portrait of a European region under siege.
