The Mafia Encyclopedia
In The Mafia Encyclopedia, Third Edition, Carl Sifakis once again provides a fascinating survey of the mob's most influential perpetrators and personalities, including their hangouts and hideaways, their plays for power, their schemes and crimes, and their unique culture and jargon. More than 100 illustrations, nearly 500 entries, and a chronology bust the Mafia myths and provide an unflinching look at the brutal, sin-laden, and bizarre culture and characters of organized crime.

Review: The Mafia EncyclopediaUser Review - Walt - Goodreads
Due to the success of prosecutors, Sifakis has been steadily updating this work since the 1980s. While accurate when discussing well-known topics, like Al Capone and Lucky Luciano, the research and presentation is very sloppy when addressing less popular topics such as the Cuckoos and Yakuza.
