The author of the bestselling COSA NOSTRA reveals the previously underexposed mafias of Southern Italy.

The Sicilian mafia is far from being Italy's most powerful and dangerous criminal fraternity. The South of the country hosts two other major mafias: the Camorra, from Naples and its hinterland, and the 'Ndrangheta, the mafia of Calabria. Each has its own dark rituals, style of ferocity and corruption.

John Dickie examines the myth surrounding these mafia groups and exposes how all three have competed and collaborated with one another, and occasionally descended into all-out war.

BLOOD BROTHERHOODS blends archival sleuthing, vivid story-telling and shrewd historical analysis to tell the story of Italy's 'criminal ecosystem' - and the three terrifying criminal brotherhoods that have evolved within it.

John Dickie will be touring Australia in July 2011.
