Author and son Anthony Colombo defends his father as one who spent his time defending civil rights of Italian individuals in the country and primarily New York City. Joseph Colombo's role in heading the Italian Civil Rights League in 1970 and 1971 at Columbus Circle was to promote the Italian Americans and debunk the stereotype of Italians being gangsters. The 1971 rally is where the assassination attempt took place on Colombo and put him in a coma for the next several years before he eventually succumbed to his injuries.
The book concludes with the various scenarios as to who was behind the assassination. The lone gunman, Joey Gallo, Carlo Gambino, and the F.B.I.--C.I.A. theories are a few of the possibilities. Anthony Colombo believes it was the latter who was responsible. I liked the book but I thought it contained significant filler such as a chapter on the movie The Godfather.
