America's Mayor, America's President?: The Strange Career of Rudy Giuliani

by

America's Mayor, America's President?: The Strange Career of Rudy Giuliani Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Rudy Giulianis admirably flinty response to the horrifying events of 9/11 made him a national hero, positioning him for big things to come — a run at the highest office — in the nations political life. However, the outpouring of praise for his performance after that grim day has obscured many uncomfortable facts about Giuliani, one of the most polarizing figures in the history of the Big Apple. Americas Mayor, America's President? collects original articles and reporting by some of New Yorks most perceptive authors and reporters on Giulianis two terms as mayor. This revised and expanded edition includes such luminaries as Michael Powell on Rudy and race; Greg Sargent on his presidential chances and what kind of leader he would be; and Richie Steier discussing the messy Bernard Kerik affair. These, and nine other articles, have few illusions about Giulianis turbulent reign, offering an informative and entertaining corrective to todays simplistic celebration of this complex, troubling figure.
