999 Comment But He Was Good to His Mother: The Lives and Crimes of Jewish Gangsters

  1. A thoroughly compelling book and one of a kind The apt title was chosen due to a response Rockaway s mother gave when he was talking about a Jewish gangster But he was good to his mother What seemed to be common among most Jewish gangsters was the fact that they had strong family ties, and were unwilling for any of their families to get involved in any of their heinous crimes In some cases what they did was a mystery to their families.The book is engaging and touches on the lives of the most not [...]


  2. Robert Rockaway s But He Was Good To His Mother contains quite a number of interesting anecdotes and stories that bring to life an almost forgotten period in the American Jewish experience Starting with Arnold Rothstein, the man most famous for fixing the 1919 World Series, Rockaway covers all the bases in his work, with special attention paid to the rise and fall of well known figures such as Lepke Buchalter, Meyer Lansky, Longy Zwillman, Bugsy Siegel, Mickey Cohen, and many others.





  3. For an academic, this was a disappointing book It is one of the few books that discusses lesser known Jewish gangsters like Kid Cann, Max Hoff, and Abner Zwillman The book also has some rare photos of gangsters Finally, it also includes some first hand accounts of former gangsters However, there is some disbelief Rockaway quotes Meyer Lansky in a few places but says that Lansky felt betrayed after the publication of book based in part on interviews with him Only in one place does Rockaway questi [...]


  4. I enjoyed the book, but there were several areas that needed editing The book s description alludes to research done for the book and interviews While research must have been done to produce this book, not much of the information seemed new, and while there seemed to be an interview mentioned, the interviews did not seem to be extensive Nevertheless, the book offered an interesting viewpoint If the reader is not familiar with the information contained in this book on the various old time mobster [...]


  5. Great stories with detail about the lives of Jewish gangsters including Meyer Lanky, Bugsy Siegel and Longy Zwillman.


  6. Very good Covers the era and backgrounds of Jewish gangsters and how they meshed with the Italians and Irish.


  7. it really deserves 2 stars for being clobbered together sloppily the third star is for the gangsters for actually being interesting the only saving grace of this book.


  8. This was one of those books about the myth of gangsters Of course, the mob often was like a myth, but it did actually exist.
