A Generation of Jewish and Italian mobsters worked together in American history, understanding that money had no ethnicity or religion, if worked together instead of fighting each other, everyone makes money.
While doing research for his book, Prof. Robert Rockaway interviewed old-time Jewish mobsters and their families. He never knew what his subjects would say or do, so he came prepared for any eventuality.
Dr. Robert Rockaway was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. He received his Ph.D. in history from the University of Michigan in 1970. He taught at the University of Texas before moving to Israel 1971. Since then, he has been a member of the Department of Jewish History at Tel Aviv University.
