This email interview with Dwight C. Smith jr. was conducted during 2012 and 2013. It discusses Smith’s background, influences, career and current thinking and activities from his early career in U.S. Army Counter-Intelligence in the 1950s and New York State organized crime intelligence in the 1960s, through to his debunking of Mafia mythology – particularly in the influential book, The Mafia Mystique (1975) - in the 1970s and then to his development of the spectrum-based theory of enterprise as a potentially more productive way of addressing the problem known as organized crime.
