Gangland Australia PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Gangland Australia free pdf Gangland Australia details the exploits of an unforgettable cast of villains, crooks and mobsters who have made up the criminal and gangland scene in Australia. One of Britain's top true crime authors, James Morton, is joined by barrister-turned-legal-broadcaster Susanna Lobez in this fast-paced examination of Australian organised crime. Tracing the developments in and the shifting dynamics of Australia's criminal underworld from the early 1800s until the Melbourne gangland killings of recent years, this is compulsive reading. Meticulously researched, Gangland Australia follows the rise and fall of Australia's talented conmen, standover men, brothel keepers, club owners, robbers, ethnic minority crime figures, bikers, drug dealers and contract killers to illustrate how small-time operations have become financially solvent criminal corporations with international links. It also examines the role of police, politicians and lawyers who have helped and hindered the growth of criminal empires. Vivid and explosive, Gangland Australia is a fascinating survey of Australian criminal activity over nearly two centuries. It should become the definitive work on the subject.
