About The Book
The best book ever written about an American city, by the best journalist of his time.” — Jimmy Breslin
New edition of the classic story of the late Richard J. Daley, politician and self-promoter extraordinaire, from his inauspicious youth on Chicago’s South Side through his rapid climb to the seat of power as mayor and boss of the Democratic Party machine. A bare-all account of Daley’s cardinal sins as well as his milestone achievements, this scathing work by Chicago journalist Mike Royko brings to life the most powerful political figure of his time: his laissez-faire policy toward corruption, his unique brand of public relations, and the widespread influence that earned him the epithet of “king maker.” The politician, the machine, the city — Royko reveals all with witty insight and unwavering honesty, in this incredible portrait of the last of the backroom Caesars.
New edition includes an Introduction in which the author reflects on Daley’s death and the future of Chicago.
