""In Sicily politics, mafia, and social history are impenetrably entangledâ¿¿or so I had thought until I read Reversible Destiny. The Schneiders have performed a near miracle: an accurate, objective, and very readable account of the Palermo anti-mafia movement, its roots, its accomplishments, its shortcomings, and its prospects. In a time when these prospects are ever bleaker, this should be obligatory reading for anyone concerned with the consequences of organized crime and corruption for civic life.""â¿¿Mary Taylor Simeti, author, most recently, of Travels with a Medieval Queen ""Written by scholars renowned for both their expertise on Sicilian society and their political savvy, Reversible Destiny tells, for the first time, the story of the rise of the anti-mafia movement in Sicily. Eagerly awaited by scholars, it offers a highly readable examination of a fascinating topic.""â¿¿David I. Kertzer, author of The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara ""Jane and Peter Schneider have done it again. Using a variety of ethnographic, documentary, interview, and judicial sources, combined with their deep knowledge of the Mafia, they document the rise of the anti-Mafia movement in Palermo, the reaction to it of the elite, and its varied impacts on the city's life. Far from utopian, their clear-eyed vision illuminates the deep roots of the Mafia's cultural legitimacy, the obstacles that the anti-Mafia movement has encountered, and the continuing struggle to build a civil society in the city.""â¿¿Sidney Tarrow, author of Power in Movement: Social Movements and Contentious Politics
