Author Howard Abadinsky also explores the methods employed by law enforcement agencies to combat organized crime, and the conclusions reached by various investigating committees and commissions, such as the President's Commission on Organized Crime. Consistently praised for its accessible analysis of the definitions and attributes of organized crime, the text also includes first-hand accounts from Abadinsky's personal experience as a state parole officer in New York City, his work for the Sheriff's Office in Cook County, and hours of interviews with organized crime figures.
