The Big Bankroll The Life and Times of Arnold Rothstein ↠ ePUB construyamos.co

Arnold Rothstein 1882–1928 was described in the newspapers of the 1920s as a sportsman a gambler and the man who fixed the 1919 World Series But he was much than that A bootlegger and labor racketeer he corrupted politicians promoted crooked stock sales and imported narcotics And perhaps most importantly he transformed organized crime from a thuggish activity practiced by hoodlums into a big business run like a corporation with himself at the top For twenty years the name of Arnold Rothstein symbolized money—big time money gambling money racket money illegal money millions upon millions of dollars His share was ninety percent of any deal he was never indicted for a single crime he always won at cards and horses And despite his involvement in dozens of murders and hundreds of other crimes his luck never ran out At least not until 1928 the year in which he was fatally shot The perpetrators—and Rothstein's millions—were never found The Big Bankroll is the definitive biography of the man known simply as Mr Big In it Leo Katcher reveals not only sordid details of the life of America's most powerful gambler but illuminates the whole era in which crime became king

    This reprint of Katcher's biography of Arnold Rothstein does a great job of creating a book out of not very much And that is because his subject was not a flashy gun toting cinematic mobster Rothstein was the archetypal shadowy money man always in the background always ready with a loan always ready to have people owe him He didn't fix the 1919 World Series but he certainly profited from it He wasn't a violent man but had no qualms about the use of violence when he wanted to collect Gambling vice narcotics nothing was off limits as long as there was a cut for Arnold to cream off Shot and killed in 1928 Rothstein does not get the creditblame he deserves for putting the organisation into Organised Crime
