A study of the rule of the criminal in America written in the early 1930's. From a British point of view, the author indicts the American public's complacency in permitting its continuance. The background and origin of American crime, from the Five Points to Cicero, from Gyp the Blood (Harry Horowitz) to Scarface Al Capone, are surveyed by the author.
Harry Collinson Owen (1882-1956) was a British war correspondent, journalist, and author.
