    Abstract

    Unless one is involved with the problem, one gains most of one's information and attitudes toward organized crime from newspaper headlines and instant TV analyses of the problem. It comes as a bit of a surprise to some of us that organized crime is not the prerogative of a monolithic fraternity for individuals of Sicilian descent. According to the author, organized crime is, in reality, “a loose confederation of ethnic and regional crime groups, bound by economic and political necessity.”
