This lively account—the first to locate the emergence and evolution of the mafia in historical perspective—describes how those rebellions led to the birth of the modern mafia and traces the increasing influence of organized crime on the island. The alliance between two classes of Sicilians, James Fentress shows, made possible both the revolution and the mafia.
Militancy in the ranks of the revolution taught men of honor how to organize politically. Communities then resisted the demands of central government by devising alternative controls through a network of local groups—the mafia cosche.

Fentress tells his operatic story of honor and crime from the viewpoint of the Sicilians, and in particular of the great city of Palermo—from Garibaldi's historic arrival in to the spectacular mafia trials around the turn of the century. Drawing on police archives, trial records, contemporary journalism, and government reports, he describes how enduring political power plus a richly deserved reputation for violence helped the mafia secure covert relationships with groups that publicly denounced them. These contacts still protect today's mafiosi from Rome's efforts to eradicate the organization.
The history of the mafia is indeed, Fentress shows, the history of Sicily. James Fentress lives in Italy where he has written articles on Sicilian and Italian society in English and Italian papers and journals.
He taught political philosophy at Brunel University in London. How these zealous men who fought for liberty ended up squabbling over turf and murdering their neighbors in family feuds is a sad yet interesting tale.

James Fentress's narrative verve and meticulous analysis of individual episodes add greatly to our understanding of the mafia in the nineteenth century. Filippo Sabetti, McGill University: "A chief value of Fentress's work is that it transforms into a variable what is often viewed as a constant: the emergence of mafia groups as illicit, criminal enterprises Fentress makes us appreciate why many unions in the United States have been bastions of organized crime, and why some Sicilian antimafia groups after and had difficulties in not becoming mirror images of what they sought to destroy.
The Rebel Series is a mixture of romance and adventure. I absolutely love stories that are page-turners, which have some mystery and suspense.

I love a romance where the man and woman know they are meant for one another and have a strong belief in God. Even though there are trials along the way, they never give up on the other. I also like strong women characters in a story. This is a swashbuckling romance set in the late s. The women, on the other hand, were not pansies by any means.
My great, great grandmother lived back then and she was brave and independent. I love the fact that people fought for what they believed in and wanted to be free. The Rebel Series was inspired by the stories of the American patriots who fought to be free from the dictatorship and tyranny of a king. Liberty is something that I cherish. The miracles that happened during that war made me realize that God was watching over us.
When I read the stories of the American Revolution, my heart swells with gratitude for those loyal patriots. When I look at our flag and pledge allegiance or listen to The Star Spangled Banner , tears well up in my eyes. There are only 3 books in The Rebel Series.
