Fighting Organised Crime
Fighting Organised Crime, a new book by Bob Bottom, is essential reading for all interested in how Australia has shaped up to the threat of modern organised crime.
Bob Bottom has spent a lifetime writing about and acting in the public interest in the fight against organised crime.
Nobody has suffered more threats from the underworld and vilification from people in high places.
Bob Bottom has survived them all to outline in this book the ups and downs of pushing authorities in Australia to establish proper structures to properly combat organised crime.
National and state crime commissions have been enacted along with nationwide telephone tapping and other special powers.
How well they have been applied - or not - is a truly disturbing side to an otherwise inspiring story.
