    1. ITALIANO / ENGLISH (Mafia Republic: Italy's Criminal Curse. Cosa Nostra, 'ndrangheta and Camorra from 1946 to the Present)Mi sono sempre documentato molto sulla storia della mafia siciliana (Saverio Lodato, Marco Travaglio), abbastanza su quella della camorra napoletana (Roberto Saviano) e poco o niente sulla storia della 'ndrangheta calabrese. Tuttavia sono sempre stato curioso di leggere qualcosa sull'argomento "mafia" scritto da qualcuno che non fosse italiano. Premesso questo, quando ho avut [...]

    2. … a wise traveller should bring this book with him on an Italian holiday and use it as sunscreen while tanning on a gorgeous Sicilian beach.As I was researching for my book Silvio Berlusconi's Italy: a portrait of the country and its godfather, I stumbled into this thick volume. I had almost involuntarily been dragged into the criminal dark side of Italy since writing about the last twenty years of Italian public life - the Berlusconi Age - meant writing about the permanent mafia-state connect [...]

    3. Very well written & interesting, though I would've liked more of an account of the 'ndrangheta (though the absence of information in this regard is well explained) Best read as a companion piece/sequel to Dickie's previous book Mafia Brotherhoods though it might work just as well in isolation (I didn't read it that way so I couldn't say).

    4. Very extensive book. Really good, but often hard to follow because of the enormous amount of information about the different mafias over time and all the different names.

    5. John Dickie has become something of a Mafia "expert", this being his third book about the subject (the others being Mafia brotherhoods and Cosa Nostra). He writes lucidly and well about the peculiarly Italian mix of culture, criminality and power that is encompassed by the major organised crime societies mentioned in the title.Originally confined to their own areas of the Peninsula and Sicily, Mafia republic describes how, after World War II, these criminal syndicates expanded their range into N [...]

    6. An excellent history of organised crime in Italy in the 20th century, Mafia Republic combines academic research with impassioned polemic and punchy writing. John Dickie takes you through the origins and evolution of the Cosa Nostra, Camorra and 'Ndrangheta in modern Italy arguing that they are cohesive organisations that have thrived in the spaces left for them by the modern Italian state - both influencing and influenced by the shape of Italian politics, economics and culture. He argues that on [...]

    7. John Dickie demystifies the world of the Cosa Nostra in Mafia Republic. It's a factual depiction of the mafia underworld and it's impact on all levels of society. The stories at times can be quite gruesome which adds to the gravity of the book. The Mafia Republic is truly a state on its own.
