LEOLUCA ORLANDO is mayor of Palermo, Italy. A former member of the Italian Parliament and the European Parliament, he was given the Bayard Rustin Human Rights Award for 2000 by the American Federation of Teachers.
Fighting the Mafia is Orlando’s dramatic tale of witness and survival, of his effort to expose Mafia infiltration into the highest levels of Italian life and politics, and of the movements he helped to build—in schools and churches and at the ballot box—to recapture Sicilian culture and inspire a renaissance of democracy.
