Reviewing Cosa Nostra: A History of the Sicilian Mafia by John Dickie. While in Sicily, I read Dickie's book detailing the history of the mafia called “Cosa Nostra.” Along with providing a history of the mafia and how it came to be, the book also does a nice job of outlining recent Sicilian history. Ok, ok, this was a pretty good history of the Sicilian mafia. Behind La Cosa Nostra are Italian organizations – the four Italian Organized Crime (OC) groups currently active in the United States are the Sicilian Mafia, Camorra, 'Ndrangheta and Sacra Corona Unita' (United Sacred Crown). The beginning of the Italian Mafia or Cosa Nostra is hard to identify, because of its secretive nature and lack of historical record keeping. Fewer still know of the twisted roots of its beginnings. The genesis of Cosa Nostra is hard to trace because mafiosi are very secretive and do not keep historical records of their own. This is precisely what author John Dickies novel Cosa Nostra: A history of the Sicilian Mafia sets out to rectify. His archival sleuthing is yoked to his powerful, often coruscating storytelling to create a chilling account of the mafia's sinister, horrific reality. The Italian mafia has been raking in money meant to subsidize renewable energy in Sicily. For example the Sacra Corona Unita in Puglia and the Camorra3 in Naples and its environs. However, no crime organisation has ever come close to the organisation, power and capabilities of the Sicilian Cosa Nostra.
