In this textbook, Abadinsky (criminal justice, Saint Xavier U.) explores organized crime and its control. He compares New York and Chicago crime groups, and outlines the growth of today's "Chicago Outfit" from its origins in the Capone era. He also includes research on international crime organizations and outlaw motorcycle clubs, comparing and contrasting these new forms of criminal organization with the traditional models.
