A behind-the-scenes tour of the longest-running criminal trial ever to be held in a federal court -- the so-called Pizza Connection trial, which pitted the full resources of the U.S. government against 22 Mafia defendants accused of a $1.65 billion heroin-smuggling and money-laundering conspiracy that stretched from Sicily to Brooklyn to Brazil to a chain of pizzerias. What happens when the stakes are so high that truth and justice take second place in the heat to win? The roster of names reads like a Who1s Who of crime and the law, including Rudolph Giuliani, now mayor of NY, then the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of NY and the 3invisible maestro2 of the entire prosecution.

From Damon Runyan's colorful tough guys in black shirts and white ties to recent media coverage of John Gotti, the `dapper don', public depictions of racketeers in the United States have drawn attention away from the true nature of organized crime and its extensive penetrations into mainstream business. The Upperworld and the Underworld: Case Studies of Racketeering and Business Infiltrations in the United States strips away the romantic patina and reveals the significant impact of racketeering on vital segments of American industry. In this informative study Robert Kelly explores two fundamental questions: `Why is organized crime a serious problem in some businesses and industries, and not in others?' and `What are the consequences of racketeering activities for labor organizations and businesses tainted by a criminal presence?' He examines the blurred demarcation between the legitimate and illegitimate sectors of society and explains the reasons for this occurrence. In the process, Kelly provides a distinct vantage point for understanding organized crime, not just as an `outlaw fringe' preying on society, but as a disturbingly integral element of our social and economic structure. Moreover, he confirms a widely held thesis that organized crime is not merely parasitic but an institutional component of American society. The Upperworld and the Underworld affords a fascinating view of the current state of organized crime in the United States and the rise of nontraditional criminal organizations in new immigrant communities. The volume is an essential resource for students and scholars concerned with issues of crime and its effects on the economy.
