This exploration of the full diversity of the Italian Antimafia draws on primary sources and interviews to provide the first complete analysis of social, political, and grassroots effort since 1992. The murders of judges Falcone and Borsellino in 1992 caused an institutional crisis in Italy, aggravated by evidence of rampant corruption in political business life. Since then, exceptional law enforcement successes have been undermined by inadequate looks at Antimafia initiatives within the context of international initiatives against organized crime.
