The criminal organization known as The Camorra existed a century before the emergence of its cousin, the Sicilian Mafia. This book argues that its influence today is as strong as ever. This account of the organization and its leaders claims that it is a crime syndicate of extraordinary power and resources, involving the major political parties, along with the police, judiciary, administrators and leading figures in the business community.
