Mafia: The History of the Mob in America is a cold-blooded examination of organized crime in the twentieth century. Starting with the prohibition years, this groundbreaking investigation traces the origins of the ethnic gangs that capitalized on criminal activities by turning them into family enterprises. With men like Al Capone, Lucky Luciano, and Lepke Buchalter at its heart, and bootlegging, racketeering, and murder at its soul, this four-part series (2-dvd set) is a sweeping saga of bloodshed, betrayal, and big business.
