Good book. It covers:

1. How the geographic, economic, social, and political traits of New York City gave rise to the LCN

2. The Prohibition years

3. The early "boss of bosses," general assemblies, and the causes and participants of the Castellammarese "rebellion"

4. Origins of the Commission

5. The LCN's move into the labor unions and legitimate industries in New York City

6. The LCN's involvement in the drug trade

7. The LCN's involvement in boxing, nightclubs, and gay bars

8. Standard LCN rackets

9. Some myths of LCN life

10. Law enforcement and the LCN

11. Some major LCN hits (including more info that supports Capeci's take on the Anastasia murder)

12. Apalachin (including a breakdown of who was there and how/where they were caught)
