The Full Rudy: The Man, the Myth, the Mania
In the wake of September 11th Rudolph Guiliani became "America's mayor." He is remembered for cutting crime, taking charge when the twin towers fell, and displaying leadership when others were overwhelmed. Named Time magazine's "Person of the Year" and knighted by Her Majesty the Queen, he now charges $100,000 a speech and is the frontrunner for the GOP ticket in 2008.
But while Rudy wants to be President, this classic account by the late New York journalist Jack Newfield ? who knew him for more than twenty years and had many private conversations with him ? is a classic muckraking foray into Rudy's dark places. Newfield shows he is "a C-plus mayor?who has become an A-plus myth." Newfield talks to those who know Rudy best, revealing a portrait of an intolerant, authoritarian leader whose strengths are canceled out by "immense weaknesses of temperament, opportunism, and intolerance."
This new edition of the award-winning book has a preface by best-selling author Joe Conason.
