Infamous Mobsters

Bootleggers, smugglers, drug dealers, hit men—all these occupations are the provenance of mobsters, who operate in ethnic, family and business networks. Mobsters' real life crimes, and Hollywood's fascination with them, has earned them a special place in the American imagination. From Al Capone's Chicago crime ring and Bugsy Siegel's Las Vegas racket to "The Teflon Don," John Gotti, these mobsters have made their names notorious from coast to coast.
