Investigative reporter Russo returns with the remarkable story of the Supermob a cadre of men who over the course of decades secretly influenced nearly every aspect of American society Presenting startling never before seen revelations about such famous members as Jules Stein Joe Glaser Ronald Reagan Lew Wasserman David Bazelon John Jacob Factor as well as infamous scrupulously low profile members Russo pulls the lid off of a half century of criminal infiltration into American business politics society At the heart of it is Sidney The Fixer Korshak who from the 194. This is a hard book to rate Certain aspects of it like the volume of research and the connections the author makes deserve 4 or 5 stars Russo s dissection of the Ashkenazic Jewish diaspora and their second generation experience in Chicago and subseuent success in shaping American society is an excellent eye opening analysis As the book progresses Russo s challenges in tackling very broad subject matter become apparent The book struggles between being a biography of Sidney Korshak and an expose of a loose knit amorphous and somewhat exaggerated entity known as the Supermob a group of powerful and influential Jews with connections to La Cosa Nostra Russo even lumps Ronald Reagan in as a member of the Supermob But Russo clearly despises Reagan and assigning him membership in a criminal organization is just one of many ways the partisan author attacks the former President actor and union leader Russo s anti Reagan agenda causes him to go on lengthy off topic diatribes in a book that s already too long For example he sets out to show that Reagan deserves no credit for the fall of the Soviet Union in a purely political paragraph after paragraph editorial that has nothing to do with Korshak the Supermob the Outfit or any other pertinent subject of the book Russo uotes mobster Allen Friedman a career criminal serial liar and world class sleeze saying that he took a suitcase full of cash from Jackie Presser to Ed Meese for Ronald Reagan A few paragraphs later Russo says Practically at the same time that Reagan s team received Presser s cash filled briefcase Russo turned Friedman s dubious uote into a fact without offering any corroborating evidence for the proven liar s claim It s sneaky and it undermines the book s credibility High on Russo s long list of Reagan s sins is his anticommunism According to Russo communists in Hollywood were fictitious commies p291 Nook edition which is like saying there s no Mafia in Chicago In the same paragraph Russo states that the lefties were not aligned against the United States but were merely a reaction to World War II fascism and Reagan and cohorts surely knew it In reality many of whom Russo refers to as lefties were card carrying members of the Communist Party who swore their membership oath to Stalin when Stalin was allied with fascism under the Hitler Stalin Pact For example leading Hollywood Communist Dalton Trumbo went to great lengths to protect the Hitler Stalin Pact by doing everything in his power including writing an anti war novel to prevent the US From entering the war against fascism I suspect that a researcher of Russo s stature knows the true extent of Communist infiltration of Hollywood but simply chooses to repeat old myths in service of his political agenda Other inaccuracies though usually trivial become annoying as they pile up Many gangsters were referred to as a boss even when they were mere soldiers Russo describes Frank Zappa on the Steve Allen Show bashing an old car with a sledgehammer In fact Zappa used drumsticks to ingeniously make a musical instrument out of a bicycle One has to wonder if Russo got the sledgehammer and old car from the same grab bag as Reagan s suitcase full of cash Russo deserves credit for documenting the so called Supermob in a connect the dots saga of thoroughly researched intrigue but the book would ve been better served had Russo been able to reign in his bias and his word count The Mammoth Book of Scottish Romance infamous scrupulously low profile members Russo pulls the lid off of a half century of criminal Prayer For Little Things infiltration A Treatise on Time and Space into American business politics society At the heart of The White Lantern it Kingsbane (Empirium, is Sidney The Fixer Korshak who from the 194.
