From the Paper:

"A Review of Dick Lehr and Gerard O'Neill's Black Mass, The Irish Mob, The Boston FBI, and a Devil's Deal. (New York: PublicAffairs, 2000). In 1988, the authors set out to investigate two notorious criminals of South Boston's Irish ghetto, Jim `Whitey' Bulger and his brother, Billy Bulger. Whitey Bulger was Boston's most powerful crime boss, and his brother had been made President of the Massachusetts Senate in 1978, both men in collusion those of similar background inside Boston's FBI that permitted Whitey Bulger's career to continue. In 1994, Bill Bulger and several near the top of Whitey Bulger's organization were arrested. Whitey Bulger disappeared and has since been on the FBI's `top ten' list of wanted criminals. Black Mass will interest readers exploring an environmental approach to criminality in its description of a practically tribal south Boston Irish culture."
