Description
The subject of innumerable newspaper and magazine articles, scores of novels, and hundreds of Hollywood movies, the gangster was a compelling figure for Americans preoccupied with crime and the social turmoil it symbolized. In this richly detailed account of mass media images, Ruth reveals how the public enemy provides a far-ranging critique of modern culture.
