Beschreibung

Philadelphia's 'Black Mafia' could be used as primary reading in deviance and organized crime courses. Academicians in the fields of criminology, sociology, history, political science and African-American Studies will find the book compelling and important. This book provides the first sociological analysis to date of Philadelphia's infamous "Black Mafia" which has organized crime (with varying degrees of success) in predominantly African-American sections of the city dating back to the late 1960's.
Philadelphia's 'Black Mafia':

-is a first step in developing both data and sophisticated theoretical propositions germane to the ongoing study of organized crime;
-uses primary source documents, including confidential law enforcement files, court transcripts and interviews;
-explores the group's activities in detail, depicting some of the most notorious crimes in Philadelphia's history;
-thoroughly examines the organization of the Black Mafia and the group's alliances, conspiracies and conflicts;
-challenges many of the current historical and theoretical assumptions regarding organized crime.

Pressestimmen

"Griffin's research is mind-boggling, in the best sense. He has rendered Philadelphia and the United States a valuable historical document."
(James Nicholson, former investigative reporter for the Philadelphia Inquirer)
"...an important contribution to the study of organized crime for two reasons. It removes a white spot on the map with respect to African-American organized crime, and at the same time it adds significantly to our knowledge of the overall crime picture in Philadelphia from the late 1960s through the mid 1980s."
(Klaus von Lampe, European Consortium for Political Research)
