The Gangs of New York: An Informal History of the Underworld (Repost)

Herbert Asbury "The Gangs of New York: An Informal History of the Underworld"
Vintage | English | July 1, 2008 | ISBN: 0307388980 | 400 pages | azw, epub, lrf, mobi | 34,2 mb

Asbury's book is highly readable, full of blood and thunder, loads of colorful characters and as many tall tales as there are pages. The book isn't so much a history as it is an impression. What Asbury captures is clearly an impression of the Five Points and its gangs in the public consciousness and folklore. This is a sort of "if it didn't happen this way, it should have" bit of storytelling. If you want actual history, look elsewhere. If you want a strong taste of American folklore, start reading.
