Item description

Here for your delectation is the SPECTACULAR RARE---------------CAPONE: THE LIFE AND WORLD OF AL CAPONE by John Kobler. The gangstas were always afraid Capone would cap one of them......... This book was the first major work to address Capone and the mob world of organized crime. In this book, lines are cleanly drawn between Capone and the "forces of law and order" while the author does admit to some indiscretions on the part of a lot of government people by actually being on Capone's payroll. Kobler indicates that the government couldn't figure out how to get at Capone, entrenched as he was behind his organization. Kobler presents Capone's charity-giving as an attempt at PR to make the "man in the streets" empathetic---hence more willing to buy Capone beer and patronize his gambling and cat house businesses. Capone, after Alcatraz, was an invalid with a minuscule amount of decision-making and influence. Capone comes off as just a figurehead for a steamroller force known by various names like the "Mob", the "Organization", etc. An excellent work on the Depression Era. PLUS----there are L-O-A-D-S of photos!! This is the hardcover stated Putnam Edition from 1971. Both the cover and the book are in excellent condition. There are no rips, tears, markings, etc.---and the pages and binding are tight (see photo). **Note: All books listed as FIRST EDITIONS are stated by the publisher in words or number lines--or--only stated editions that include only the publisher and publication date.
